Where to find the best Information security jobs

With the ever expanding dependence upon computers and the Internet to facilitate our lives and businesses in the information age, IT security has become one of the largest, fastest growing, and most lucrative fields in the IT industry. However, where does a person look to find the best information security jobs? Below is a short guide to help in this search.

Internet

The first and most obvious choice for someone looking for IT security jobs is the Internet. Not only will each potential employer have site with an employment section, but there are dozens of employment sites available to help in the search.
Some sites, such as CareerBuilder.com, simplyhired.com, and indeed.com list work in every field. Other sites, such as Dice.com or Computerjobs.com, specialise in IT industry jobs. Access to foreign jobs Another argument for searching for security careers on the Internet is the access to jobs in foreign countries, something many of the more traditional job search options lack. Obviously, not everyone looking for security work is going to be willing or able to relocate to another part of the globe. However, for those who are, the developing world means a lot of opportunities in a place with a shortage of qualified candidates.

Employment agencies and other media

Employment agencies and other media, such as newspapers, industry magazines and trade shows, can be an invaluable source of job leads, and have the advantage of creating real world contacts to help spread out and sustain a job search. Contact a co-worker On a similar note, contact any former co-workers who are still in the industry. Not only might they know of an opening which is available with their company, or soon will be, but they provide a reference and an "in".

Other things to consider

Look for new certifications If the job search still is not going as well or as quickly as hoped, use the time to pick up some new certifications to improve your resume. The technologies field is constantly changing and it never hurts to stay current. Expand the field of your search Moreover, consider expanding the field of your search. Instead of focusing solely on IT security, consider going into security sales, consultation, or management. Flexibility can be the difference between a rewarding career and a never ending search.
