Transition in Campus Ministry Office

submitted by lindayre@augsburg.edu

Peace be yours, beloved Augsburg community.
I have served as a campus pastor at Augsburg University these past eight years, and it has been my joy to accompany this community rooted in the Lutheran church but open to the dynamic and eclectic ways we encounter the Holy. With that said, September 30th will be my last day as co-pastor at Augsburg. My heart has called me back to parish ministry, and I will serve as one of the pastors at Grace University Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. I give thanks to God for my colleague and cherished friend, Pastor Babette Chatman, who will continue to lead Campus Ministry. Not to mention, the amazing staff team of Campus Ministry: Janice Dames (Administrative Assistant), Fardosa Hassan (Muslim Student Program Associate & Assistant Director of Interfaith Institute), Andrea Sorum (Chapel Musician), and Tori Remer (Pastoral Intern)! I urge you to support these dear ones in this time of transition. You are invited to come to chapel on Thursday, September 30th at 11:30am for my final service among you as pastor. I look forward to the new ways I will partner with the Augsburg community in our shared mission to be neighbor and serve God’s world in love. Justin Lind-Ayres, Co-University Pastor

TODAY-NetSPI Presentation: Have You Thought About a Career in Ethical Hacking?

submitted by brookinj@augsburg.edu

Friday September 17, 2021 4pm – 5pm (CDT)

Dina Soulek, Senior Recruiter | NetSPI
Marissa Allen, Security Consultant | NetSPI
Graduate of Normandale Community College and Augsburg University

Have you ever thought about being an ethical hacker but didn’t know where to begin? NetSPI hires people for our 6-month immersive training program where we typically hire recent college grads or folks looking to make a career change. This 6-month program training program comes along with competitive pay and benefits typical with all full-time employees at NetSPI (including health, dental, vision, etc.). The training program is staged as an extension of the classroom – where we’ve had groups as small as 4 and as large as 16 learn all things pentesting. We typically gear the program towards web app pentesting with hopes of setting a strong foundation for our pentesters to learn and grow into different areas across our service lines. Once they reach the 6 months mark, they are reviewed via a lab to be considered for a promotion to a client facing penetration tester.

In this presentation we will share who we are (NetSPI), introduce ourselves and what we do, portray a day in the life as a pentester, and what growth at our organization looks like. There will be an interactive portion of the presentation and the opportunity to ask questions!

For more information about NetSPI: https://www.netspi.com/careers/
