'Having a clear, concise resume that effectively summarizes what you as a person were responsible for is critical,' says Drew Fearson, chief operating officer at NinjaJobs.

Demonstrate Your Communication Skills
The article is interesting but missing a key element.  It is an imperative that the security professional is a strong communicator.  This includes verbal and written skills that demonstrate you know how to write complete sentences, develop arguments, and can speak to the issue at hand.  Also, you need to have very strong skills with the Microsoft suite of Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.  If you cannot effectively communicate then you will not be a solid security professional.  Thank you.
