Career "Advancement"

About 2 years back I left my job in an InfoSec group. That particular position wasn't the right fit for me anymore, and somehow I didn't think I would be a good fit for a security role in most other organizations. I don't have the pen testing experience needed for most security companies, and the thought of maintaining firewall rules at some retail house would bore the crap out of me.

Since then I've been struggling to find myself career wise. I spent some time in an IT role, and I'm now trying a more customer facing role. Still I find myself happiest in ##security on Freenode, answering people's security questions.

So, what now? Maybe someday I'll figure that out.
