Through its new initiative, Advancing San Diego, San Diego Regional EDC is hosting a FREE virtual industry event that will bring together employers and students of San Diego schools for a day of career exploration, professional development, company information sessions, peer learning, and networking. Open to local high school and college students, the event welcomes those with diverse education backgrounds and majors to make valuable connections to San Diego companies and learn more about career opportunities in industries that continue to grow despite economic uncertainty.
The virtual conference will feature five workshops that are available to stream on-demand for a full 24 hours, and a keynote session from Lee Wills, Head of Inclusion and Talent Acquisition at Sony. CCOE’s Link2Cyber panel (12:15 – 1:15pm) will showcase San Diego’s cyber leaders discussing in-demand skill sets, career pathways, and opportunities in the region, followed by a demonstration of the Cyber Career Map.
We will also have a virtual career fair where students will get to network live with corporate representatives from local companies from 3:30 – 5:30PM.
