You may have already noticed, but we have added two subsections to the Job Openings section of our website. The first, Full-time Employment, will largely be the same as Job Openings. It will be where we post openings for full-time or three-quarter time positions. Anyone can apply for these positions, and we encourage everyone to do so. The other section, student jobs, will be the place we post positions for current BYU students in the Office of IT. This is to better accommodate the needs of students who are looking for part-time employment while attending school. We hope that these additions will help to clarify what kind of position is being filled, as well as making the job hunt easier for everyone. Whatever your situation, check back often to see what new positions have opened up!
For those of you who frequent our site, you know that BYU recently won the Rocky Mountain Regionals in cyber security. With this win, they qualified to compete in the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, or NCCDC, in April.
The NCCDC is considered to be the biggest collegiate competition for cyber security. To participate you must first win a regional competition, which is no small feat. If you qualify, you will be one of ten teams competing for the national title.
With that background, making it to the competition is an impressive feat. This year, BYU went on to do more than qualify, and took second place. If you would like to know a little more about the NCCDC and this year’s results, click here. Good job cougars!
As graduation approaches we would like to congratulate our student employees for their achievements. Graduation is an exciting time, a time to celebrate accomplishments, new opportunities, and the possibilities that the future holds. While we are sad to see some of our student employees leave, we are so proud of what they have accomplished here at BYU. To all of our OIT graduates, congratulations and good luck!
Just about everyone dreams of greatness. For some, that might be a breakthrough discovery, for others to get on the front page of a journal. Perhaps it may be to stand on a podium with the gold medal. This dream became a reality for BYU’s cybersecurity student team when they won first place at a regional competition on cybersecurity.
This was the first time BYU has ever reached the top in this competition. Not only that, but in the process they broke away from the current demographic trends. More than half of the women for the entire competition were on BYU’s team. Now they are headed to the national competition, which you can read more about here. Don’t forget to cheer them on at nationals!
To most, Utah is a familiar name. It has a lot of new tech companies. It has a rich history. But sometimes, the natural beauty of it all is overlooked.
