  • NetSPI Is Hiring

    7 April 2006

    Carleton alum Brandon Tearse ’04 tells us: “Two years ago I was hired as an intern for a growing information security company in Minneapolis called NetSPI. After receiving training and getting some experience doing internet penetration tests, pseudo-phishing schemes, and other similar security activities I was hired as a security consultant. At that time our organization needed a new intern to replace me. I convinced NetSPI to return to Carleton to recruit a second intern. As a result we hired Anna Grasso (graduated in ’05) as our new intern. Now she’s been hired as a security consultant and we’re heading back to Carleton once again to find interested people. If you are interested in learning about what it is that an information security consultant does and what NetSPI can offer you, feel free to drop by our presentation in Leighton 305 at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12. If you can’t make that, you can investigate our company online at www.netspi.com.”
