    A Career In Cyber
    Where are the #$*&@!% jobs?

    Time and time again I get asked to mentor students, young adult children of friends or people I meet at cyber events to help them get into the field of cyber.
    They often remind me they see a range of press articles, quotes by higher education facilities and companies claiming that we have a global skill-shortage of cyber professionals, yet they can't seem to get an entry-level position.
    A Career In Cyber will hopefully guide them in a direction that will enhance their opportunities in obtaining a start in the exciting field of cyber.
