Students in Columbia’s Networking and Information Technology classes learned about potential cyber careers in the FBI last week when they heard from two guest speakers.
FBI outreach specialist Timothy Leonard and cyber security agent Roderick Link, both from the Albany field office, talked about the mission of the FBI, how they use technology to prevent and solve crimes and the various FBI careers involving cyber skills.
“Many of our students plan to pursue collegiate studies and a career in Network Administration,” said Columbia teacher Christine Kawczak. “The more opportunities the students have to meet professionals in the field and learn about the benefits of different career paths, the more informed their decision making will be post graduation.”
The classes are planning to tour the FBI’s Albany field office after the holidays.
