Sam Houston State University will host a Criminal Justice Career Fair today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the LSC ballroom.
The Criminal Justice program at SHSU molds future leaders and the CJ Career fair is there to facilitate opportunities to the students who want to expand their knowledge beyond the classroom.
SHSU students are encouraged to dress professionally and bring plenty of copies of their resumes to show to future employers.
Senior Criminal Justice major Charlene Perez said students should take advantage of the opportunity to meet future employers.
“I believe the biggest advantage of the Criminal Justice fair is the fact that students get to mingle with potential employers face-to-face,” Perez said. “Students are able to interact with professionals one on one, allowing them to develop strong interview skills.”
These opportunities are made possible by the participation of employers with the help of the university. This allows students to have the opportunity to make lasting impressions on prospective employers.
Perez also offered insight on who would be present at the fair.
“The U.S Secret Service, HPD, and the U.S. Border Patrol are some of the many companies that will be present,” Perez said. “I would recommend visiting the career services page to view the complete list of attendees.”
If students choose to attend the event, they can expect to have many chances to show their dedication to future employers.
“Everyone can expect a professional and informative environment,” Perez said. “The companies that attend come prepared and are ready to answer any questions.”
Students in attendance can expect potential employers to ask for their work experience as well as their goals and aspirations.
“This career fair is important to Criminal Justice majors because it can open so many doors that students may have overlooked,” Perez said.
