Find Your Next Role to Advance Your Cybersecurity Career

Cybersecurity careers can have high earning potential but often job seekers don’t know where to look for these opportunities. ISC2 is helping by launching Career Fairs

According to Fortune, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that information security analysts— entry-level cyber defense jobs earning an average salary of $112,000—will see a 32% increase in employment opportunities by 2032, outpacing the growth of most other occupations. Not only does cybersecurity pay well for entry-level roles, the ISC2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study also reports a steady progression in salary as professionals advance from junior level to executive with the potential to earn more than $200,000.

There are many job opportunities available for cybersecurity professionals, whether it's a first role or advancing to the next level. CyberSeek reports there are more than 440,000 available jobs in the U.S. alone.

To help job changers find their next role in this rapidly growing industry, ISC2 is offering a new benefit for members, candidates, associates, students and seasoned professionals looking in the cybersecurity industry.

On June 20th, ISC2 will launch its first in a series of virtual career fairs connecting job seekers and employers throughout the cybersecurity industry. As the world’s leading cybersecurity member association, the jobs available will vary from entry-level up to leadership roles with some attendees in the process of pursuing a CC (Certified in Cybersecurity) certification and others who have held the more experience-based CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) certification for many years.

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit employers’ virtual booths to speak with representatives and learn about the companies’ open opportunities, culture and benefits. Recruiters will be able to easily review job candidates’ submitted resumes, educational experiences and job preferences while engaging directly with attendees via audio, video and text messaging.

During times of economic uncertainty, many organizations have made cutbacks involving hiring freezes and layoffs. According to the annual ISC2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study , 47% of respondents have experienced cybersecurity related cutbacks and 22% have specifically seen layoffs. Despite these economic setbacks, with the ever-growing need for cybersecurity professionals worldwide, the workforce gap has grown by more than 12% YoY. ISC2 Virtual Career Fairs offer opportunities to fill this need by connecting cybersecurity professionals at all levels with employers in demand for cybersecurity talent across all industries.
