    In January, I updated my profile on a popular job board. While the information security space is quite hot and my inbox was quite busy, I also got a number of emails from left field. Over the course of a few weeks, I also received over 25 emails from some of the most prominent life insurance firms in the US, including:

    • Bankers Life
    • Aflac
    • Prudential
    • Allstate
    • New York Life
    • Northwestern Mutual
    • State Farm

    The emails from the life insurance firms attempted to stroke my ego with statements such as:

    • ‘We came across your resume posted online and are very interested in you as a possible candidate’
    • ‘I’m in charge of reviewing top local resumes and yours stood out to me’
    • ‘We found your resume on careerbuilder.com and we are very interested in you as a possible match for our Account Representative position’
    • ‘We believe you possess the skills necessary to join the Career Management Program’
    • ‘It is not every day I read a resume and think WOW!’

    Did these firms see my CISSP and think: this guy was born to become a life insurance agent? Three of the life insurance firms wrote that I have unlimited earning potential. Which domain of the CBK is that?
