To be successful, you need to be able to discuss networking and network security concepts with reasonable fluency, and to be comfortable asking focused and insightful questions of others.

    • You must have excellent written and oral communication skills.
    • You must understand advanced English grammar, semantics, and usage.
    • You must be able to write in a style that is easy to read and understand by readers of normal intelligence, and that does not rely on jargon or terms of art.

    • You must submit unedited first drafts or self-edited writing samples for review. Team-contributed works and works edited by others are strongly discouraged.
