About Job Placement

Find out more about cybersecurity job placement in this FAQ

Will companies take me in after your course?

We cannot guarantee employment as each individual has unique expectations from a job. However, our graduates typically receive multiple employment offers after the program. We also assist you with cybersecurity interview & CV preparation to help you get employed.

What type of jobs can I get after the course?

The Career Essentials Program equips you with the technical skills to thrive in entry-level jobs like a Security Operations Centre (SOC) Analyst Tier 1 or a Junior Penetration Tester. The VIP Package goes a step further and will allow you to enter mid-level cybersecurity roles such as SOC L2 or Vulnerability Assessment.

What starting salary can I expect?

Our students have been offered an average 15% above market rate for their roles after our course. However, this depends on your highest educational qualification, previous job experience, personal interviewing and negotiation skills. We will provide career guidance to ensure you are matched to the right remuneration. Additionally, we advise students to focus on the long-term prospect of the career instead of the first immediate role as past students have accepted lower-paying roles (approx $3k - $3.5k) and were able to make a jump to higher-paying roles within 6 months.

I saw some job listings with a degree as a criteria, I don’t have a degree, can I still get a job?

Yes. Unfortunately, the current HR practices in the industry still rely on existing hiring criteria and will list a degree or IT-related certifications as a criterion. We have had students who were hired, although the job listing stated they needed a specific educational qualification or accreditation.
