My general advice would be to ask these questions of recruiters and hiring managers, not the mostly non-hiring community of slashdot. There's tons of really bad advice in these comments. Having switched tracks a few times, I can tell you that in my experience it generally involves choosing an area to specialize in, taking some classes and/or getting certifications, trying to get some hands on experience if possible, and then marketing yourself well.
Okay, it might not be malice, but I'm sure we can all agree it's evil, i.e. harming others (e.g. takedown notices) to benefit oneself (e.g. stockholders).
Never made a judgment call on if it was good or not. Just that it was not Malice.
Just so long as we're focused on what's important.
