Lurker here (I don’t think I posted my job), but its really relative what “level” of skills are sufficient. There is a wide range of jobs, their roles, and opinions of proficiency. I’ve met people that are “pentesters” but all they know how to do is click “scan” on Nessus- but hey, they are in the biz, getting paid and building on that resume- I’m not hating, just saying. Then there are strait up “Gods” in the industry- don’t measure to that, just do you and keep chipping away.
Throw yourself out there, you’ll either find your qualified, or not and learn what to work on, or find a job that meets where you stand- some places are looking for eager, teachable and full of potential persons that are willing to take low pay because their resume and skill set cannot demand more, but the company knows they can OJT that person into a useful employee- and after that happens your world really really starts to open up.
Also, IMO get certs. Lots of people scoff at brand X or Y cert but in many cases they get you the interview- they don’t say you get the job, but they get you the interview. Sell yourself in the interview, get the job, get the job and make a good name in the industry (small world) (basically, don’t be a d*ck), network. Years later make six digits, join the realm of 1st world problems.
