Pizza My Mind Presented by United States Strategic Command

Have you heard of the United States Strategic Command? If you haven’t, then you are missing out on amazing opportunities. Civilian workers and CNU alumni, Chris McDaniels and Frank Zarzour, lead a presentation on the possibilities of working with the United States Strategic Command. Despite being civilian workers, both McDaniels and Zarzour work directly with military personnel in addition to working with other civilians on a daily basis.

The purpose of this group is to guarantee the security of the United States and its allies. Their responsibilities include strategic deterrence, nuclear operations, intelligence analysis, space operations, and missile defense. A wide variety of positions and leadership opportunities are available to those interested in getting hands-on experience in those fields.

Normally, employment processes are restrictive and highly preferential to veterans and civil service workers. However, it is possible to get into these programs, especially into programs focused in cyber security, through their available internships. Interns are allowed to bypass many of the obstacles in the hiring process. To become an intern, a student is required to have a 2.0 GPA and the ability to work up to 40 hours a week on breaks from school. A strong knowledge of programming and networking services is preferred, though not required.
