Hi Guys

I have an interview this week for a Digital Forensics job with my LA

They have said there will be a test, I was wondering what it could be, was thinking they might just sit us down in front of a pc and ask us to find some info from it??

Just seeing if anyone can help improve my chances, I get nervous at interviews.

Cheers

Gra

It may not even be a test on forensics. I would say your best bet is to go in fresh and do not stress about something you have no control over.

So? It's a large area. You may be asked to use a tool you've never laid eyes on, to extract files you've never heard of from a device you even didn't know existed -- and it would still be a test relating to digital forensics.

If you're a musician looking for employment, you audition for the job: you play something you've prepared and brought with you, and you play something that you may not have seen before and will be handed to you five minutes before you're due to play.

In this kind of interview, I would probably ask you for the main forensic platform you've been using (Encase, FTK, Paraben, ...), and then hand you a simple case to do on that platform from beginning to end ... or until I was satisifed I knew your level and area of competence.

For example: If you're a clarinet player auditioning for a job, and can't play the second movement of Mozart's Concerto, you're very green.

If you are looking for a job in digital forensics, but don't know about best practices in your particular jurisdiction ... you're also green. Whether that's good or bad depends on the job.
