Be proactive and look for the areas that interest you whether it’s the Environment or Human Rights and find MEP’s or interest groups that specialise in those interests and take the initiative to send them your CV.

Having a European language would help you considerably in this career. Irish should also not be ruled out as an option as this is considered as a second language.

New Bursary for CIT from CyberSecurity Company eSentire

eSentire Inc., a leader in continuous advanced threat protection solutions and managed cybersecurity services, celebrated the opening of its new European-based HQ and Security Operations Center (SOC) in Cork by announcing the first bursary for the Department of Computing at the Cork Institute of Technology (CIT).

At an event to mark the occasion of its opening, eSentire cemented its commitment to Cork by announcing CIT Department of Computing’s first bursary. The bursary, named after a revered eSentire executive who passed away in 2014, will be awarded to a second year student starting in the 2015 school year.

Since announcing the Cork, Ireland location, eSentire has hired 11 employees to work in its Cork location and plans to reach 100 employees over the next five years. 10 Irish employees spent a month at eSentire’s headquarters in Canada this summer as part of their new hire training and orientation. eSentire is actively recruiting top talent for its Cambridge, Ontario location and is on track to nearly double its workforce to 250 by the end of 2015.
