I wanted to know how network security oriented some of your jobs were.

If you can say, what kind of software/hardware do you use to help keep your network secure. (kinda toutchy question I know)

What are some good things to be familiar with? (programs etc.)

Is the security field a good solid place to focus on?

I used to do some consulting work with network security. It's a really good field if you know what you're doing. You'd be surprised how insecure a lot of corporate networks are. Some good things to familiarize yourself with are firewalls, both hardware and software. Also, learn Cisco, very very very good to know.
