The National Cybersecurity Training and Education (NCyTE) Center and the Centers of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Cybersecurity Community are hosting the fifth annual National Cybersecurity Virtual Career Fair (VCF), sponsored by the NCyTE and the National Science Foundation (NSF), on September 17, 2021, from 9:00 am-1:00 pm PT. This event is open to students and alumni from over 300 institutions designated as Centers of Academic Excellence in Research (CAE-R), Cyber Defense (CAE-CD), and Cyber Operations (CAE-CO), and institutions in the Candidate's Program (pending approval).
As the CAE in Cybersecurity program continues to designate new CAEs, the number of students participating in the VCF grows each year. Last year, over 1400 students and alumni participated in the virtual career fair.
Survey data from the 2020 event indicate both employers and students positively receive the CAE VCF. Many students find careers through the VCF, and many of the same employers return each year to participate.
