Had a lunch date with the man who hired me for my current jog. He moved to a different company before I started here so I thought it would be nice to wrap things up. He was a noshow and I had lunch with his coworker (account manager). I introduced myself and he offered me a job.

'Hi, my name is X. I am an Information Security Officer'

'Would you like to work for us?'

Six years ago it took me 8 months to find a job. Now they throw job offers at me during unexpected lunch meetings. WTF. I suspect that being female in the field of information security really helps, plus I can carry a conversation. As sad as that sounds, I met enough IT people who could not carry a conversation to believe that this might be true.

Current work is okay. Still feeling a bit lonely but getting things done, so go me!

My old BD teacher's daughter is completing some kind of IT training with an eye to working on help desks, and she says being female and capable of talking to.average humans is set to make her very employable.

That is ever the way isn't it - you struggle when you need something and get too much when you don't!

Ha ha! I feel your pain. I think that in any industry when you ge to a particular level if you are a woman then you get offers.

Incidentally my boyfriend is an IT Security Analyst (he works for Sophos). Not the same thing but similar area, and I think he is a relatively 'typical' IT person in that he is very introverted, though he is good at communicating when he has to.
