What companies support clean technology and share IT roles?

Hi! I'm looking to enter IT. An industry I discovered is clean technology. Clean technology means environmentally-friendly or energy efficient power use. Are there any midwest American companies that have information technology departments and care about sustainability or energy stuff? If so, what are the companies looking for from IT college students?

Do security pentesters work steady hours or are they basically freelance?

(I want to be transparent right up front: I'm not a student. I'm a staff member at CareerVillage.org. But I'm posting this question because although we have many questions related to #cybersecurity, we don't have this one, and I think our students would love to know the answer.) My question: Do professional pentesters* work steady 9-5 jobs for one company over a long period of time, or do they mostly freelance,** or do they have some other typical working arrangement? If the answer is "it depends", then could you share what you've seen as "the norm"? I'd be especially appreciative if you'd share whether you have experience in the industry. Thank you in advance! Notes for the students who will read this question: * Pentesters are cybersecurity experts who focus on gaining access to systems , sometimes called "white-hat hackers". ** Freelancing is working as a contractor on an hourly or project-based basis, usually for hours, days, or months at a time for a "client" (a company that will pay you for your time). It differs from being an employee in a couple of ways, but that's a topic for a different CareerVillage question :) #cybersecurity #it-security #security

Would it be wise to take AP Calculus to pursue a career in Information Technology?

Hi, I just became a senior in high school and have plans to pursue a career in IT security. I have a choice to take AP Calculus this year. My other options are Business Math or Statistics. Would Calculus be a helpful course to prepare for an IT career? I know it is not a mandatory course to take, like it would be for someone entering Computer Science. But I have looked at other discussions and many people says that it helps you think differently. Thank you for any advice and comments. #information-technology #cyber-security #computer-security #it-management #information-security #it-security
