Catch-22
Sara, 

Interesting. And tricky. 

"More than just a Cisco server, they need to know how servers work, and how servers link to each other. They need to understand the strategy and engineering behind a server. They don't make those in college."

Maybe it's about time colleges revised their syllabus to better adapt them to the requirements of today's positions in the enterprise. It seems there is a lot of incompatibility between what colleges are teaching and what the companies need. 

"Individual technical certifications don't provide a broad understanding of security strategy, and CISSP certifications are only given to people who already have five years of experience working as a security professional."

This sounds like a typical catch-22. How on this world can you get five years experience working as a security professional if "There really aren't many entry-level positions in security in the same way there are in other industries," according to what Julie Peeler says. :/   

"What we really need is people who have experience beyond the one piece of technology."  

Okay. That's what they need. Does Julie says what is the best way to get that experience taking into account what she previously said about the entry level positions? Or I missed something? :(
