All - I have exhausted my personal network, linkedin and head hunters for the past few months. I am currently working on a contract basis and the money is not bad, but I want something more challenging . My SANS GSEC cert expired and I working on a getting few done by the end of the year. Ideally I would like to work on a 6 month contract doing risk assessments and Vuln analysis. I have three year of consulting experience at a well known firm and 3yrs in industry. I don't have in depth hardware experience (e.g. Cisco IPS/IDS, etc.) but I have been able to tackle any project thrown at me.
Currently I am working on a short forensics/ediscovery project. It seems like these days it all about who you know, so I hope to get some hints
Any ideas of headhunter that seem to have a lot of security gigs in Chicago? I am also open to working for the state or government, but not sure where to start.
