What are some steps that I can take to become a White Hacker?

I am almost done with my undergraduate degree in Applied Computing Technology (Computer Science and Business) and I wanted to know if there are steps I should take to right now to make it into this profession. Thank you.#technology #tech #information-technology...

How to successfully fundraise for a school club?

I would like to help my club afford attending different conferences. We are a club centered around STEM majors. We don't know the ins and outs of being sponsored by companies/raising money for the organization. I would greatly appreciate any and all advice. Thank you. #college #university...

Where can I look to get real-world experience?

I am a college student, declared in the electrical engineering major. I don't have a 3.0 at the moment but I would like to work in a field specific to my major and skills that I have acquired. Do you have any suggestions what kind of companies or places hire students with a GPA around 2.5?...

When employers list a specific GPA requirement, is it final?

I ask this because I am a electrical engineering major and I don't have a 3.0 GPA, which seems to be the threshold for most companies looking to hire college students. I would like to apply for most companies but I do not meet this requirement. I want to note that I usually don't meet this...

Should I apply for as many relevant opportunities that come my way?

I am currently in my second year as an electrical engineering major. My gpa is below a 2.5. Should I count myself out of having a chance at these opportunities and work on my gpa or should I apply and see what happens for this year? #engineering #internships #research #gpa...

What companies/occupations make it their job to find flaws?

I am asking because this is something I might like to do. I do happen to watch a lot of movies and was wondering if movies are not all lies. To be specific, are there companies that get hired to try to disable a company's security system, find flaws in a website or app, or altering access cards...

What does an entry-level engineering job look like?

Could you specify if you had previous experience, i.e. an internship, co-op, part-time job, before graduating? #engineering...

What is one thing that you think engineering students should develop/begin to develop during their time in undergrad?

I ask because I don't have a flexible 4/5 year plan for the courses I need to take to graduate. Some things I have been told are: learn public speaking, learn language, learn CAD, and learn something completely different for engineering....

As a woman, why did you decide not to pursue engineering?

This question is for women who declared a field of engineering as their major and later switched to a non-engineering major. #college #engineering #women-in-stem...

How did you move on after failing your first college course?

As the semester is ending. I will have officially failed my first college course related to my major. It seems like the end of the world to me but that's because I overreact most of the time. Failing has slowed my motivation to continue with college. I just want to know how anyone who has been...

Are there downsides to hiring someone who graduated from an HBCU (Historically Black College/University)?

I just wanted to know if all graduates are looked at as qualified no matter what school they attended or if students from certain schools look more qualified #college #jobs #university #hbcu...
