As an intern in McAfee’s SOC, I’m immersed in what it takes to defend customer zero – McAfee – each day. Here, surrounded by industry leaders, I feel challenged to think creatively to help analyze attacks.
~Hunter, Security Operations Center
During my internship, I’ve done real work that helped establish new processes for contract modeling. Not only was I challenged to learn new skills, but I helped grow the business.
Finding meaningful work and an amazing team were at the top my list. At McAfee, I found both and can’t wait to see what my future holds as I start my career here.
