Pizza My Mind Presented by L2T

The Department of Physics, Computer Science and Engineering had the pleasure of welcoming Bryan Hughes, Kelley Fitzgerald, and CNU alumna Amanda Norloff from L2T to present at Pizza My Mind on March 24th. L2T is a full-service IT engineering and solutions provider that provides secure networking, virtualization and remote access and custom software for their customers.

A small company based out of Herndon, L2T is a rapidly growing government contractor looking for fresh college graduates. New employees at L2T will have ample opportunities both inside and outside of the company: they can be more than just a face in the crowd, which will lead to faster promotion. L2T is also more than willing to provide tuition assistance for further education and is highly flexible for career path changes.

L2T has a unique office dynamic in that, rather than working in large teams, new employees spend most of their time with an assigned mentor who helps to train them. Once a new employee has been with the company long enough, they then are assigned their own mentee.

When applying to L2T, be it for an internship or full-time position, it helps to have skills in Java, Python, and Linux. With that being said, it is more important to demonstrate a good work ethic, positive attitude, and willingness to learn. Any students or recent graduates looking to secure an internship or job at L2T should apply online on Handshake or reach out to recruiting@layer2-tech.com

Thank you to Bryan Hughes, Kelley Fitzgerald, and Amanda Norloff for such an informative presentation on L2T.

Kimley-Horn is a civil engineering and environmental consulting firm that works in both the public and private sectors. Speakers Kodi Berger, Caroline Odell, and Jon Chambers have a combined 34 years of experience in the Transportation Systems and Environmental sector of Kimley-Horn.

Since Kimley-Horn is a multidisciplinary company, employees have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, including but not limited to aviation, community planning, and energy.
