The Rotary Club of Georgetown-Sun City along with the Jarrell High School INTERACT Club sponsors a Career Guidance Program throughout the school year. This exposes students to different promising, long term careers where there will likely be jobs waiting for them after the post-high school education.
On Thursday, FEBRUARY 9th, a Special Agent from the FBI, who is an expert on counterintelligence based in Austin, spoke to about 60 Jarrell High School students about the prospects of Cyber Security as career. He demonstrated how cyber attacks have exploded over the past few years and how it is affecting our government, banking, private businesses and individuals vital information and data. The Special Agent showed the different career paths that students can take to work in cyber security and that the demand in this field far outweighs the supply of cyber experts. About 10 Rotarians also attended this presentation.
