About the Role

Our goal for the program is to equip qualified students with the competency and knowledge they need to transition into a career as a cybersecurity consultant. A position with CrowdStrike Services will expose you to a wide variety of engagements including front page incident response investigations, adversary-emulation penetration testing (be the adversary, don’t just run scans), and proactive and strategic assessment services for organizations you’ll find on the annual Fortune 100 list.
