We take a holistic view of career development and focus on three key areas: You, Career Services, and Industry Engagement. We provide you with individualized career training, support, and planning to help you get ahead. With our platform, you will gain access to exclusive opportunities and resources tailored to the industry. We have built a strong community around cyber security that trains, supports, and hires our graduates. Conferences, Meetups, and Industry Panels give students a chance to learn the latest trends from the experts themselves. Students at SecureSet become effective and efficient networkers who take control of their careers early on.
This is a tricky question. It all depends on your efforts leading up to graduation and your actions following it. Some students are hired prior to completing the program, often with no security experience. We have a 90% placement rate within 6 months of graduation historically, and there are no signs cybersecurity is going away. You will be encouraged to meet as many industry professionals as possible to learn from their success and help clarify a path for yourself. The fastest placements have come from simply showing up and meeting people. Additionally, we continue working with SecureSet alumni long after they achieve their first job.
We have proven time and time again that technical degrees do not make hackers. Our industry partners are looking for emotional intelligence just as much as technical skill set. The threat is always evolving. Diversity in problem solving capability is just as important as ever. Chances are, the manager who will hire you does not have a technical degree either. Also, entry-level talent that can start performing security functions on day one is hard to come by, but you are likely more affordable than an expert.
Be yourself and work hard. Some of the most amazing opportunities were earned through sheer will and follow-through. We give you the technical skills and the community. Your curiosity and passion will guide you further. Study everything, master nothing. Multitasking and effective prioritization are key. Read more here.
Between our Career Services Managers, we have decades of experience in providing targeted transitional assistance to active duty service members, spouses, and veterans. We take the time to listen and provide support where necessary. Employers have diversity hiring initiatives that include service members. Those with active secret clearances or higher will be highly sought after by Department of Defense contractors.
SecureSet provides the general technical skills necessary to qualify for entry-level and up-skilled positions in information security, whether that be security analysis or engineering. Our partners in the industry have diverse needs and would prefer to teach their new hires the best practices inherent to their business. SecureSet’s immersive classroom and lab-based training accelerates the learning process, much like practicing a new language in another country. The industry has taken notice. We’ve had Zookeepers, Firearms Instructors, Cashiers, Truck Drivers and more forge their pathway into cybersecurity. At this point our alumni are embedded all over the industry and have opened the doors for future students.
