Cybersecurity Employment Fairs and Events are typically different from other industry-employment events due to the sensitivity of the roles. Another difference with InfoSec Job Fairs is that there’s massive demand! In a Post-COVID world, many industries are being squeezed, downsizing or plain struggling with the economic mayhem that resulted from the Pandemic; Cybersecurity as an industry goes against that trend.

If you’re in the Cybersecurity Job Market then you’re a smart cookie and deserves congratulations for having chosen one of a handful of industries which everyone agrees continues to grow unabated and a sector that weathers any recession, depression or downturn. Indeed, I’d argue that with increased uncertainty comes a stronger and more vital need for Cybersecurity.

Finding Cybersecurity Job Roles and indeed, breaking into the industry, is a challenge. It is my hope that you’ll attain some benefit from my list of InfoSec Job Fairs whether you’re starting your career or seeking new opportunities within the industry.

Importantly, remember two things when it comes to job searching:

  • Never, ever, give up hope: keep trying
  • Never get bitter, get better

Good luck!
