Like any conference, there’s a dress code
Dressing to impress is always paramount to getting the most out of your experience. At Student360, you’ll be making first impressions with potential employers, colleagues and thought leaders in the security industry, so note the dress code for this event is business casual.
What to bring to Student360
You will be given a notebook and pen to take notes with, but you may bring either a laptop or tablet if you prefer typing out notes. Lunch and snacks will be provided to you, so there is no need to bring in food. Also, don’t forget to bring plenty of copies of your resume, printed on resume paper (not just printer paper). You will be meeting people who want to see who you are as a potential candidate. Your resume should reflect just that.

The day begins with an interview panel of three leading chief information security officers: John Valente of 3M, Judy Hatchett of Fairview Health Services and Tim Crothers of Target. From there, you will have the opportunity to tailor your security conference experience exactly to your liking, with three session tracks to choose from: soft skills, technical skills and career skills. Stay in one track for a focused day or explore new horizons and try something in each track.
