Let’s Get You Working

Our Residency Work Center is an entry-supported employment program that joins forces with our business partners to provide job opportunities for Foundation and Work Center Preparation Course graduates.

We created these residency work centers as a much-needed intermediary step for developing professionals to connect their early foundational knowledge with the responsibilities of their first real cyber job.

These paid work opportunities provide a coach-supported environment for early workers to further develop their skill set while gaining real-world working experience.
