Chapter Business Meeting Slides: 2024-03-27 Meeting Presentation

Topic: Advanced Degrees in Cyber

Have you ever thought about advanced degrees in cyber but thought, there’s no way you have time, or that it will be way too difficult with a demanding full time job? Yeah, me too.  Hear about the upside, downside, and my research experience so far as I make progress toward identifying my dissertation topic. Interested in the path that led me here? We can talk about that too. As a volunteer career coach in the community, I enjoy answering questions and helping others come up with ideas of what could be next for them in their cyber career path. I hope to not only share some about my experience but to help with questions you might have for your cyber career.
