Call to Action: Host High School Students During San Antonio’s IT & Cybersecurity Job Shadow Day

By 2022, nearly 2 million jobs in the global cybersecurity workforce will remain unfilled. Home of the second largest cyber hub in the United States, San Antonio is uniquely positioned to identify, recruit, train, and retain the best cyber talent in the world – starting with our grade school students.  Get involved!  Sign up to host 15-40 high school students on Thursday, Nov. 7 during our citywide IT & Cybersecurity Job Shadow Day from 9:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

Students are demanding access to cyber and IT jobs, and we would love to showcase your organization and your cyber, IT, and tech jobs as a career pathway for students.  Coordinated by SAWorks within the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation (SAEDF), the Chamber and CyberSecurity San Antonio strongly encourage you to co-produce San Antonio’s future workforce.

Let’s work together to keep our students engaged in STEAM activities. Visit http://www.sanantonioworks.org/it-cybersecurity-job-shadow for more information today.
