Penetration testing mainly involves identifying vulnerabilities. Attempting to exploit some of them to demonstrate potential impact may be possible depending on the project. You will also need to portray them in a non-technical way to stakeholders and then make recommendations on fixes. To do this accurately and quickly, in-depth knowledge of as much as possible is required. Where knowledge doesn't exist, a penetration tester can acquire it quickly and efficiently. Penetration testing is a vital part of an organisational security plan, however, the output needs to be aligned with business needs. Being able to understand this need and scope it appropriately can have a drastic effect on the career progression of a penetration tester. When studying ensure you have a firm grasp on all of the concepts and invest time in learning how you, as an individual, absorb information quickly.
