For evidence of the boom in cybersecurity jobs in the Washington region, one could simply take a drive up Interstate 95 toward Fort Meade, Md. The crop of upscale apartments and restaurants make clear that white-collar professionals are moving into the area as it is being remade into the federal government’s hub for cybersecurity work.
Last week Potomac Recruiting's Managing Director of Military and Federal, Bobby Spear, went to Ft. Meade in Maryland to sit on a 5 speaker panel on behalf of the military's Training Assistance Program (TAP). TAP is part of a holistic life cycle approach to career development designed to provide transitioning Military Personnel with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to plan and execute a successful job search.
Potomac Recruiting is proud to announce the addition of Mr. Bobby J. Spear to its staff of senior recruitment professionals. Mr. Spear brings with him a long and distinguished career in law enforcement and security, as well as a highly successful management experience with Integrated Systems Improvement Services, Lockheed Martin, the U.S Air Force National Guard, and the United States Secret Service.
The demand for cybersecurity professionals far outstrips the supply of these highly skilled workers in the Washington area, a dynamic which experts and recruiters say is driving up compensation for qualified individuals and fueling fierce competition among employers to land top talent.
