here's a question, being a security group...

what sort of jobs would a CEH suit, i got a qualification in it, but i
imagine alot of companies would be scared by the word "hacker" in the
title lol... any ideas?

I'd be more concerned by your email address as a potential employer
than your EC-Council certification.  

I know CEH's in penetration tester roles at security consultant
firms.  I also know a CEH who's moved into doing forensics/incident
response work.

It's a base level certification and depending on your trainer, a
fairly decent one.  It'd best serve you in companies or departments
that have people who understand security, who understand the value of
internal penetration testing and ethical hacking.  Joe's mid-size
account firm with a 2-person IT group might not be a good fit per se,
but larger organizations where you ahve dedicated security guys
shouldn't be scared off by the term hacker.  In fact, I think ethical
hacking is two words that tell the story very well describing the type
of work done in a penetration test or value added vulnerability

thanks, thats pretty useful.

as for my email, this is my non-business email, more of a personal email.  

i do need to get myself a more appropriate one.  i'l probably be looking
at hosting and perhaps do some sort of website to promote what the
differences between hacker and cracker is.
