What is Cyber Range and What Does It Mean for Women in Tech?
In this month’s podcast, Women TechCast, CompTIA Community Manager Kathleen Martin talks to Sheri Piper, a cyber range master for Tech Data, about what cyber range—a virtual environment used for training, education, testing and other simulated threats in an environment—means in modern tech applications, what skills are shaping the cybersecurity landscape and burgeoning opportunities for women as cybersecurity specialists.
Curating a Living Resume
In a later episode, Martin talks with author and coach Karl Palachuk about creating, maintaining and optimizing a LinkedIn presence with a living resume. Palachuk notes the three ways to highlight a professional presence, as well as the three “deadly sins” of an online representation. For women transitioning into or around the tech industry, this advice is helpful, insightful and evergreen.
Making Sense of the Tech Skills Gap—Truth vs. Myths
According to latest buzz, there will be more jobs in the IT industry than there are people to fill it, which is good news for qualified job hunters. However, the perceptions, biases and myths around the tech skills gap—and what it means for employees and employers—does not match up. Check out Technologist Talk to hear what CEO, social innovator and award-winning author Charles Eaton has to say about truth vs. reality of IT workforce trends.
