We don't like dramatic headlines here at Virus Bulletin, and whether there really are one million security job openings, as is often claimed, we don't know (there probably aren't). Nevertheless, it is true to say that there are a lot of security companies looking for talented individuals to work for them, whether as researchers, product managers or as 'evangelists' (a job title that, in security, usually means 'bringer of bad news').
As an independent body in the IT security industry, Virus Bulletin is in an ideal position to act as a global source of information both about jobs currently available in this field and about those candidates currently seeking to start or progress their career in the industry. For that reason, Virus Bulletin has relaunched the VB Security Jobs Market, where recruiters can advertise their vacancies to an international readership of security professionals at all stages of their career.
Meanwhile, job seekers in the security community can also showcase themselves on the VB Security Jobs Market, by creating a profile and listing their skills and experience; potential employers can then search the 'Job seekers' section for candidates with particular skills/attributes, or simply browse all the current job seekers.
So, if you are looking to advance your IT security career, or looking for talent to fill an IT security role, have a look at our jobs section – and good luck with filling the vacancy or finding a job!
