|Background: Five or so years ago, I was arrested for hacking a bunch of fortune 500 companies. I ended up with a bunch of hacking and fraud convictions as long as a shopping list. I was also charged with multiple extortion offenses.|
Since my arrest, I have been doing freelance security work and bug bounties (currently rank 11 on a popular platform).
I have applied for multiple security roles in cyber-security and usually have no problem being invited for an interview. However, when I get into the interview and mention my background - all communication ceases.
I am still relatively young and don't want to leave these events define my future.
