Privacy Bar Section | The Privacy Advisor Podcast: What's it like to be just starting out? Related reading: The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Dipayan Ghosh on the kind of leaders who can push smart public policy


It seems to be the experience of many privacy pro newbies, anecdotally at least, that many employers are looking for pros who have at least a few years of experience to start, and, typically, they want them to be lawyers. But if everyone wants someone with experience, how does anyone get their start? In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, IAPP Westin Fellows Cobun Keegan, CIPP/US, CIPM, and Calli Schroeder, CIPP/C, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, CIPM, discuss what it's like to be just starting out in privacy and the strategies they've employed to get their feet in the door of this relatively nascent field. Want to keep up with new episodes?

    As an attorney who grabbed a CIPP/US in 2010 and hit a wall trying to move into Privacy ever since due to lack of experience, I was attracted by the title although the idea that employers want privacy employees to be attorneys has not been my experience. Even though privacy is by definition an administrative law based area, HR seems to think that since they really do not understand what lawyers do - they must not be able to do anything. My personal solution has been to return to school and obtain a degree in Computer Science in an effort to come to the market with undeniable credentials - even if no experience. Fingers crossed but it is sad to see that neither Counselors Schroeder nor Keegan show a privacy position on their linkedin profiles. And if I could be a jerky old man: please do not use the words "actually" or "like" unless you are comparing two things to each other! ;-)
