BALTIMORE, MD (October 16, 2012) — CyberPoint's Rick Geritz unveiled LifeJourney, a new online experience for students that inspires them to purse STEM and cybersecurity careers, and helps companies build their future workforce. One of the greatest challenges in cybersecurity today is not a technological one, it's a human resources one. With the dramatic proliferation of computing and communications technologies across the globe, the cybersecurity industry has experienced unprecedented growth. This growth has created an urgent need for qualified individuals to fill current job openings and to develop the skilled workforce necessary to address the expected dramatic job growth in the future.
LifeJourney is working with leading cybersecurity companies to help build the cyber generation. "We're helping cyber companies connect with high school and college students to help them learn about the amazing opportunities in this industry," said Rick Geritz, President of LifeJourney. "More importantly, we're helping the star performers at these companies reach out and mentor thousands of students across the nation, attract new talent, and build their brands at the same time." LifeJourney is an online and mobile career simulation experience that helps students find their passion, test-drive future career opportunities, and gain exposure to the skills they'll need to achieve their dreams. Connecting with mentors at America's top organizations, LifeJourney introduces millions of students to real world projects, critical missions, and practical skills. It's all about inspiring, motivating, and helping students reach their potential. Learn more at www.lifejourney.us.
