CV and social media presence clinic
13 June 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Are you a student from ethnic minority background looking to start a career in cyber? Do you find it challenging to write your own CV in a way that it maximizes your potential and at the same time catches the attention of the recruiter? Have you thought of using social media to become more visible to the employer? Although having a strong CV is the first step, a relevant social media presence can play an important role in standing out from the crowd in a highly competitive recruitment market.
This workshop offers answers to your questions. There will be Q & A session at the end of the workshop to allow students to interact and share their thoughts with the industry experts.

About The Ethnic Minority in Cyber (EMiC) Network
While there is a growing cyber security skills gap and high shortage in the UK cyber sector, a recent survey found that only 17% cyber professionals are from the ethnic minority background across all cyber roles. The EMiC network is a pilot network for the Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority cyber academia, professionals and businesses with the long-term aim of significantly improving representation across the cyber sector.
