Before the excitement of the Community College Cyber Summit (3CS) begins, students are encouraged to attend a pre-summit job fair on Wednesday, June 28, 9-11:30 a.m., at the Largo Student Center at Prince George’s Community College, featuring a number of industries and businesses.
Students enrolled in information security, computer science, and information technology degree programs will have the opportunity to talk with representatives from a range of IT and cybersecurity businesses and industries that have job openings. Students, as well as recent graduates, should have their resumes in hand to speak with these potential employers. To further educate their students, faculty attending 3CS are encouraged to attend the job fair to understand the jobs available and the skills required for a variety of positions.
“It’s normal for colleges to educate and mentor. This year, 3CS has taken our obligation to our students one step further by launching a job fair, where they are thrust into the reality of trying to convince a potential employer that they have what it takes in cybersecurity. The response by both corporations and government agencies in supporting the fair has exceeded our expectations. For that, we are very grateful,” said Barbara Belon, chair of 3CS sponsorship.
