What I'm looking for: Large Linux or Unix based networks, preferably in a network security role and working on a good team of people. Clearance would be nice also.
What I'm NOT looking for: Entry Level positions
Where I live: Washington, DC area
When I can start: After April (Going to Europe for a month in March and April)
Requirements: Good pay, good environment, education and training benefits.

I'm also curious about this for similar reasons. Security clearance would widen my job prospects significantly, being near a full-size Army base and an Air Force base that are fairly consistent employers. The Googling I've done on the subject has been inconclusive at best, and most of it seems to suggest that for a civilian to get security clearance you have to be selected for a job that requires security clearance, and it seems like you'd be fighting an uphill battle for that at best.

Is there more that I'm missing?

Not really, the easiest ways are to know someone doing the hiring and able to get you in, start a uncleared job and the transfer over to a job requiring clearance, join the Military, or get lucky and have a great resume and skill set but only lacking clearance.

I got my A.S. in Computer Engineering and am going to be attending the University of Central Florida to get my B.S. in Information Systems Technology.

Sorry it's OT but,

I graduated from UCF from the IST program and don't know if you know this, but they are closing that college down in 2 years and ending the program. So don't dawdle. Also take any classes with Craiger and avoid Motlagh if you can.

That's awesome. Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'll do well. Thanks for the tips on the teachers. How was the coursework would you say if you don't mind me asking? Was it actually intriguing?

You got a PM

Funny thing with jobs in the Omaha area that I've noticed, lots of jobs I meet the requirements for, save for one thing that keeps coming up: current Top Secret Clearance required

You could still try applying for it and if they are desperate they may put you in for a clearance.

But it's probably a long shot.

Have you put your resume on Monster or CareerBuilder?

I did a few days ago and I've gotten about 5 calls from Recruiters looking for people with 5 years experience in the DC area. I'm looking for a Linux position so I can't forward any of the leads, but good luck.

I assume you don't have a clearance?

An aside, but I notice you mentioned Monster and CareerBuilder. Any particular reason you didn't say Dice?

I've never had any luck there. I mentioned the other two because they were mentioned to me specifically by the recruiters that have called me the past few days.

All good things start with this phrase: "why the hell not"

My experience: I have experience working in small government environments for almost 5 years. Experience in Windows 98-Server2008, all MS Office Products, Exchange, Networking, Checkpoint UTM Edge Devices and SmartCenter, Symantec Endpoint Protection, AccessData Forensic Tool Kit (and much more, resume on request)
What I'm looking for: I'm looking for a position that works less with end-users and more on the backend of things. I want to get my hands dirty in networking and server administration. I do a little of both, but I always have to go back to making sure monitors are turned on/plugged in, etc. Ultimately I'd like a job at a security firm, doing security related things (I want to get into pentesting), but with the current economic outlook...
What I'm NOT looking for: Helldesk, anything end-user heavy.
Where I live: Palm Coast, Florida
Where I'm looking: Jacksonville, Orlando, Florida. I'd be willing to move out of state in about a year, but right now I have to stay put.
When I can start: Need to give my two weeks notice, but as soon as I get a job, I can give it.
Requirements: Health insurance, vacation days, possibility for advancement and TRAINING (the last two requirements are why I'm looking to leave my current job, I don't want to be dicked around saying that I'll get training "eventually", its really important to me)
