Project Description

The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is a partnership between government, academia, and the private sector focused on cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development. The mission of NICE is to energize and promote a robust network and an ecosystem of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development. NICE fulfills this mission by coordinating with government, academic, and industry partners to build on existing successful programs, facilitate change and innovation, and bring leadership and vision to increase the number of skilled cybersecurity professionals helping to keep our Nation secure.

We are looking for visual designers to help design career guides and other information with infographics and additional assets that highlight education, training, and experiences for different cybersecurity work roles. Interns will learn about the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), its history and its role in developing the nation’s cybersecurity workforce, and the categories and work roles within the NICE Workforce Framework. Familiarity with cybersecurity careers is a plus, but learning is part of this internship experience.
