A 2005 graduate in information technology: data communications and networking concentration will return to Penn College later this month to talk with students about their employment prospects in the field. Nick A. Hetrick, manager of IS security operations for WellSpan Health, will present, “Want to Know What It Takes to Be Successful in IT?” from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, in Room E140 of the Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center. His unique experiences will help students prepare for that dream job and focus on acquiring the skills they will need to fulfill their career aspirations after graduation. Hetrick will discuss how students can make the best of their college experience to get the maximum benefit from their investment – and get a leg up on the competition when graduation day finally arrives.  The event is sponsored by the Cisco Networking Academy at Penn College, which offers classes in preparation for the Cisco Certified Network Associate and CCNA Security certifications.  For more information on the certifications and how to schedule for classes, contact Jeff Weaver, associate professor of electronics, or Lisa Bock, assistant professor of information technology.
