Internet Security Specialists
If you are a high school student and think you want to get into the Internet security industry, first and foremost you need to get involved in computer science/programming classes. Don't just book learn, however. Hands-on experience is key and probably is what will get you your first job. Spend time in the school computer lab, learn how computers work, and dabble with the latest technologies. Most of those employed in the field today began at a young age just playing around with computers. What began as a hobby eventually turned into an enjoyable and challenging career.
