    Default Another Endorsement Question

    Hi everyone, I've been a self employed IT consultant for the last ten years and am about to sit for my CISSP exam. I'm wondering if anyone has requested an endorsement through ISC2 who is in a similar situation. I don't know any other CISSPs, and my closest chapter is a few hours away with a dead website. I don't have an employer, boss, supervisor, or HR staff to verify my employment or job titles. I'm a one man team. I have plenty of clients but it seems unprofessional to ask them to verify my work for a cert. Especially at the rate I bill them. Anyways, just curious if anyone has been through a similar situation.

    Thanks!

    They should just need to to talk to 2 or 3 clients that have used you for 5 years or more, and they probably can/will send them an email survey, if they only use your for a year on average, then it would need to be more. It shouldn't take your clients more than 10 minutes do, and you can mention you will be able to enhance the service you're providing them with the cert, so they should be happy to do it.

    I didn't know any CISSPs who knew me well enough to feel comfortable endorsing me. I simply submitted my work history, supplied proof of start and end dates, and was vetted pretty quickly.

    ISC can endorse you....
    Your clients would be more then happy to verify your work experience.
