More than 50 employers in policing, corrections, victim services, and homeland security as well as several law schools will converge on the Lowman Student Center Ballroom on March 1 to offer career and internship options for students.

Last year, nearly nine out of 10 employers at the CJ Career Fair said they plan to interview candidates from Sam Houston State University for jobs. To help prepare for those opportunities, the College is offering a series of events during CJ Career Week to put your best foot forward.

The College also offers the following recommendations to prepare for the Career Fair:

  • Have Career Services review you resume and bring copies to hand out at the Career Fair
  • Prepare a 30-second “elevator speech” for recruiters that relays your interest and accomplishments in criminal justice
