Your Career Compass: The Next Generation

Your Career Compass: The Next GenerationThe feature story for the October issue, “The Next Generation,” offers a glimpse inside the booming world of information security experts, many of who still have curfews.

Yes, the growing need for cybersecurity experts is expanding into high schools, as a way to recruit (even guide) students into this challenging and rewarding field. High school competitions, like Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot competition, provide a dual function: offering an arena for teamwork and a security talent funnel. For students without access to these competitions, the U.S. National Security Agency and National Science Foundation established summer camps at 29 university campuses in 18 states. Moreover, internships are being offered to some exceptional students before they even graduate. Delve into this riveting story, and gain a newfound respect for these young experts.

This Compass also tackles both a Top 10 List for talent management planning (think Exit Interviews and Mentoring) and a 2016 Career Development Checklist.

In every issue, Your Career Compass offers tips and guidance on training, education, and knowledge sharing and easy-access guides on resources available from The IIA such as elearning, seminars, and other training platforms as well as information by topic: fraud; IT; governance, risk, and controls; and internal audit practice.

Your Career Compass print edition is mailed with Internal Auditor magazine four times a year, and Your Career Compass eNewsletter is delivered to members’ email inbox monthly. Learn more and access the latest issue.
