Cybersecurity Student Lands Job As A Result of Campus Career Fair

Nov 04, 2014

Cybersecurity student Sh’Juann Vilo was recently hired as a tech lead working on the help desk at Asurion after connecting with the company during a career fair at the Nasvhille Campus. Asurion provides technical and help desk support for tablets, phones, and computer systems.

“I didn’t even expect to get a job the day that I came to that career fair,” Sh’Juann recalled. “I was just here to go to class and they happened to be here.  We happened to talk and a week later I was employed.”

Sh’Juann said that his position at Asurion is a great opportunity for him to gain valuable experience in his field.  “I work on the help desk and I’m in this wheel chair, so the job is an optimum job for someone like me [because] it would be hard for me to handle equipment,” he said. “That’s what I like about it so much.  I can still work in my field without having to hurt myself or do something that would be detrimental to me considering I have a spinal cord injury.”

Sh’Juann, who worked in the music industry for 20 years before coming to National College, feels that there is a great demand for cybersecurity professionals.  “People need to secure their information,” he explained.
He has earned his CompTIA A+, Security Pro, and Microsoft Server 2008 certifications while in his program at National and he plans to obtain three more valuable certifications before graduating.
