Possible career paths in the security industry?

I need links to good resources on possible career paths in the security industry?

By security industry I mean IT Security, and High-tech security solutions.

I'm majoring in Comp Sci and Engineering, and am interested in either IT security or development/implementation of high-tech security devices.  I need a good place to start looking for what additional education, certifications, possible future employers, and any other usefull information about the field.

After 4-5 years specialising in security, I've concluded there is no such thing as a security career path, as the technology changes too quickly !
Just get on the ladder doing something you enjoy, be prepared to relocate, and get some good experience under your belt.
As always, level 1 support is a good place to start - jobs are easy to get, you don't need too much pre-experience, and they get you a good feel to what corporates are all about...

Both list jobs specific to the IT Security field. By reviewing the postings you wshould get a good idea about background, experience, and requirements needed for these jobs.

Good Luck.
