"Not only can being a security administrator be good, but also the mailing lists, and the open source community projects that are out there are phenomenal ways [to get experience]. The great thing about information technology is that there is no age limit. You can be 12 and smart and be on a mailing list. that's a great way [to learn]because you're a part of the community, you improve the community and these projects get you involved."
Rice finished with a parting thought, "Follow your heart. The thing that's really going to keep you going in this profession is interest, rather than a paycheck. Paychecks are great, don't get me wrong, but... it's the interest."
