Can I Use Your Article In My Upcoming Job Hunt?
Thanks so much, Ms. Safran, great article.  As a longtime network admin attempting to re-invent herself into a security professional, it has occurred to me also that hiring managers would do well to broaden their scope a bit if they truly want to abate the current security talent shortage (and if they'd like to secure their networks as quickly as possible too).  A well-rounded person with the right approach and hard work, may be just as good an answer to the problem as that elusive 'top notch talent'.  I may not bring a copy of this to interviews, but I'll certainly keep its points in mind as I talk with potential employers!

Sounds Promising
I just hope more organizations are more willing to seriously consider "nontraditional" candidates moving forward.
