A common barrier to entering the cybersecurity workforce is the lack of related work experience that is often expected by employers - a dilemma for both employers facing a cybersecurity workforce shortage and job seekers who are looking to start a career in cybersecurity. While there are some traditional ways for students or job seekers to develop work experience, the cybersecurity talent gap demands more creative approaches and may require a paradigm shift. This webinar will focus on a variety of underutilized and emerging work-based learning or experiential learning methods such as internships, cooperative education, apprenticeships, and more.
