The 4th annual CAE in Cybersecurity Virtual Career Fair, sponsored by National Cybersecurity Training and Education (NCyTE) Center and the National Science Foundation, is right around the corner! This career fair brings together students and alumni from over 300 institutions across the Nation designated as National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity with employers offering internships, temporary, part-time, and full-time employment. This year, the CAE Virtual Career Fair will take place on September 4th, 2020, from 9am to 1pm Pacific Time.
Each year, the number of undergraduate and graduate students and alumni participating in this event continues to grow. Participants come from a variety of disciplines, including cybersecurity, security studies, computer science, engineering, math, physics, policy, and project management. Students from CAEs in Research (CAE-R), Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE), and Cyber Operations (CAE-CO) are invited to participate for FREE. The ITM Department, through our Center for Cyber Security and Forensics Education, has been a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education since 2016.

Students and alumni can submit resumes before the virtual career fair begins to allow employers to view resumes before the career fair. Students will also have the ability to build their profiles within the environment to ensure success. Students can participate in a series of workshops leading up to the CAE Virtual Career Fair to help them build their resume and interview skills.
