As someone who is at a similar point in their career as Nathalie, I
also really appreciate the responses from people.

What I want to also mention is doing some independent security
research. Vulnerabilities are found in freely available software
constantly, especially web applications. Sites like sourceforge,
freshmeat, and google code are great places to look for software to
test.

Find apps, install them, and try to break them. Work with the vendor
to try and get things patched then publicly announce the vulnerability.
Getting a few CVEs to add to your resume along with some vulnerabilities
are a great add. Just another way to show you have a passion for this
industry.
