This question is from SearchSecurity.com user:
I am 36-years-old. I was downsized five years back from a Fortune 500 company. Since then, I've been home with my two small children. However, now I want to go back to part or full-time work. I used to work in performance testing and enhancements of workstations. (I have an MS in computer science from the U.S.) Since I have this huge gap in my work experience, what is my general outlook? I was looking at the security field because it seems like a robust area. I am also getting some training as an Oracle DBA as an alternative. Am I taking the right steps? Can you make any suggestions?
