The Canberra Cyber Security Innovation Node was a proud sponsor of this year’s Tertiary To Work Graduate Career Fair on 12 March 2020 at the National Convention Centre with over 1000 graduates attending. This is a collaboration between the Australian National University, University of Canberra and the Australian Catholic University, with students attending from UNSW Canberra and CIT, this successful university partnership has been bringing employers and students together for over 20 years.
Canberra’s graduates were provided with an opportunity to speak with representatives from Ionize, Introspectus, Penten, Vault Cloud and SlicedTech about career opportunities in cyber security.
Graduates were provided with lots of information on career availability, with an overwhelming majority of them responding “but I thought you needed a technical degree”. The graduates quickly understood that not all jobs have technical requirements, and that backgrounds such as law, business administration and arts are key elements of a lot of roles in cyber security.
