Student Intern Program

Applications are Closed


WiCyS is proud to help bridge the gap between our student member internship needs and the internship opportunities provided by our employer partners. Starting September 2022, the WiCyS Internship Program applications for student members will be available. This is an opportunity for WiCyS student members to be brought into the pipeline of engaged employers seeking to hire potential internship candidates from the WiCyS organization.

Student Benefits:

  • Reduces frustration of internship “application burnout”
  • Gives access to CyberGEN.IQ assessment to uncover student’s innate cyber aptitude
  • Provides a direct pipeline for WiCyS members to be matched to a WiCyS employer partner’s internship

STUDENT Expectations:

  • Take CyberGEN.IQ assessment (approx. 2.5 hours)
  • The CyberGEN.IQ assessment does not need to be completed in one sitting. It can be taken one module at a time with no time deadline other than to complete all modules by the application deadline.
  • Fill out one simple application

Employer Partner Expectations:

  • Available to Tier 1 and Tier 2 strategic partners
  • Commitment to members to offer opportunities into corporate internships
  • Employers are expected to invite qualified candidates to apply 
  • Employers agree to follow up with all candidates that WiCyS provides
  • Employers commit to sending WiCyS cyber-only internship roles by September 1, 2022
