Paid Summer Program to Study Public Policy

submitted by raym@augsburg.edu

Public Policy and International Affairs (PPIA) Junior Summer Institute is an intensive seven-week summer program that focuses on preparing students for careers as policy professionals, public administrators and other leadership roles in public service. The program was started to address the lack of diversity across the spectrum of professional public service, including government, nonprofits, public policy institutions, and international organizations. The purpose of the JSI Fellowship is to prepare students to obtain a Master’s or joint degree, in public policy, public administration, international affairs, or a related field.

Selected participants spend the summer at one of six participating universities (University of Minnesota, Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Princeton, University of Washington or University of Michigan) where they take courses, learn from top leaders in the field and build their professional skills. Students must have junior or senior status and be planning to graduate between December 2022 and August 2023. To be competitive for this opportunity, students should have a 3.5 GPA or above. There is no cost to attend and participants receive a stipend.

Contact URGO at urgo@augsburg.edu and reference your interest in PPIA before October 1 to set up a meeting to learn more

TOMORROW- 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/

The zoom link for the virtual event will be sent to all registrants prior to the event.
