SANS seeks input for IT job survey

We recently alerted GCN readers about a survey the SANS Institute was conducting about the nature of IT security jobs.

The Institute gave GCN an advanced look at the early results. You can find them in this story on GCN.com.

Here is the original alert appears:

The SANS Institute is conducting a survey to find out what the "coolest" jobs are today in IT security, and is seeking help from government IT workers. The security institution will use the results to compile a booklet for students that will tout the benefits of choosing a career in IT security. It needs examples of interesting, high-impact and impressive jobs within the field of information security. Users are asked to provide descriptions of job duties, as well as exciting real-life scenarios, of network administrators, network security engineers and other IT security specialists. Submissions will be anonymous.
