The Demand for Cyber Talent
The opportunity is massive in both California and across the United States. According to research from cyberseek.org, in California alone, there are currently over 72,123 open cybersecurity roles (with 21,957 in the Los Angeles metro area) and a very low supply of cybersecurity talent.

Nationally, there are over half a million cyber jobs that employers are trying to fill. Businesses actively seeking cybersecurity professionals span across all industries and sizes, and they include local, high-tech employers like Boeing, the US Department of Energy, and Southern California Edison, to name a few.

These companies are hiring for roles like Cyber Security Engineer, Cyber Security Analyst, and Cyber Security Consultant. Grads studying the Caltech Cyber Bootcamp curriculum have been hired for all these roles—and more.
