Mentoring and networking is essential in starting out and learning about the field of technology and cyber sciences. Both of these can be instrumental in shaping your journey as a professional.
Students will be paired with a mentor and they’ll come up with a schedule that works for both parties. Participants will fill out a brief form indicating what they hope to accomplish or learn from the session. This is valuable for the mentor and will provide direction for the meetings.
- Students are placed in a small group with a mentor who has experience in the topic of the students’ interest (security, programming, career, etc.)
- Mentors provide advice, suggestions, and encourage students to think critically
- Meetings can be on a one-time or ongoing basis as the student sees fit.
