Description (excerpt):

A cybersecurity internship can provide hands-on experience, develop tangible skills, and strengthen your professional network while you’re still in school.

Interns get to take classroom knowledge and practically apply it in the real world. You can use the connections you make at an internship to get letters of recommendation, mentorship and advice, and — in some cases — job offers after graduation.

Adrianna O’Dell, a computer science major, found the cybersecurity internship she completed during her junior year to be a valuable experience. She explained why she chose a cybersecurity internship: “Cybersecurity has always piqued my interest, and being able to apply the various techniques I would learn in an internship would help me achieve my future career goals.”

This guide will describe the different types of cybersecurity internships available, suggest places to look for opportunities, and explain how to land a position.
