Forwarded from: H C <keydet89at_private> There isn't a shortage of experienced security personnel...simply check any of the sites listing jobs in the DC Metro area. The gov't is opening up positions to via contract vehicles, and constracting firms are trying to fill them...but the only steadfast requirement in any of the postings is a *current* TS clearence. And if the commercial sector is going to whine about a lack of talent...let 'em. The commercial sector has been posting positions since before 9/11, and not responding when a principal or a placement firm puts a resume in front of them. The talent's out there...the fact that recruiting has gone down the toilet over the past couple of years is the reason for the comments for NIPC. The purpose of certifications are now not to show a minimum level of knowledge...they're a tool that gets you past the recruiter and in front of a hiring manager. > ARLINGTON, Va. - A critical shortage of experienced security > personnel - and not a lack of technological advancement - is > hindering the effort to secure the nation's public and private > networks, government officials and security experts said Tuesday. - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
