Candidate and student profile
Candidates and students on Elite Security Network share a profile and dashboard experience. A candidate is an individual with expertise in the domains of cybersecurity and/or data privacy who is actively seeking to use that expertise in the workforce. A student is an individual who is beginning their education in these same domains, using the network to research school programs or find internships. Student profiles become expert profiles once the student has entered the workforce and update their profile type from "student" to "candidate". Because of the shared profile experience, any data submitted as a "student" will persist once the profile type is changed to "candidate".
