Federal Security Services Career Panel

Six panelists involved in federal security will join the Salisbury Center for Career Services and Professional Development for its upcoming panel on Federal Security Services.  The panel will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanford Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library.

Assistant Director of Career Services Miranda Warder says it was student interest that spurred the discussion. “If there is a student demand or passion for a certain topic, we seek to meet that need,” she explains.  “Each year I have a strong group of students interested in FBI, CIA, DHS, NSA and the like – wanting to learn about internships and career information about the federal security field.”

Warder organized the panel to offer “a variety of perspectives, career and education paths to the audience – with the goal of giving students a firm sense of the many roles and skill sets needed in federal agencies.”

The panelists include: Matthew Chilbert, special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigations;   Kristopher Grahame ’04, an intelligence analyst for the FBI; Kevin Haggerty ’02, a supply chain security specialist for the Department of Homeland Security;  Dr. Sheldon Rabin ’69, a retired senior operations officer for the Central Intelligence Agency; and Joseph Testani P’16, P’17, a supervisory special agent with the FBI; and Stephen Foreback ’89, assistant to the special agent in charge of the Dignitary Protective Division of the U.S. Secret Service.

All majors are welcome to attend.
