Thanks for the warm welcome.

Yes I have considered a law enforcement placement option. I am still hoping to find something in the private sector. The problem is that there doesn't appear to be many Canadian organizations that offer that type of employment.

I am aware that forensics and computer security in general is an under serviced profession, but recent searches of popular job postings revealed only 2-3 related opportunities. Perhaps a different approach is in order. Should I be looking towards a larger global enterprise, or a smaller consulting shop for the best gains (knowledge/experience)?

I think that's one of those questions which doesn't have an easy answer, both environments have pros and cons. Larger enterprises are likely to be involved in bigger, more "important" cases yet as a starter you're likely to be a small cog in a large machine. Smaller shops will probably deal with smaller cases yet you're likely to be given more responsibility.

Perhaps at the end of the day it comes down to personal preference. As far as career progression is concerned I think it's probanly fair to say that a large firm does look good on a CV, whether or not that *should* be the case is a different matter!

Thank you again for your input Jamie.

I have been leaning towards a larger shop for the very reasons that you have mentioned. You have given me the push I think I needed. I'll keep you posted to let you know how I've made out.
