Bernadett’s Story – Digital Forensic Analyst @ Crowdstrike 2022

“Since I joined the SkillStruct University Network, I have only had positive experiences. I was feeling a bit lost with regards to my career, I felt like I hit a dead spot. What really helped me out of it was knowing that there was a supportive network out there. Finding a job is never easy, there is a lot of rejection, and it can take a long time. However, a talk with SkillStruct helped me see past these rejections and provided insight into what companies are looking for. I was never a big fan of tests and assignments as a part of the recruitment process, I always failed these, but they explained to me how to shift my viewpoint and how to better prepare for them the next time I must take one. I am very happy in my new role at CrowdStrike and having SkillStruct helped me better prepare for the interview, so I am very grateful to be part of such a supportive community.”
