Are You Experienced?

By December 11, 2012

It's often hard to find a job if you don't have any relevant experience, and of course you can't get any experience if you don't have a job. Or can you? Just because you haven't been paid to do a job doesn't mean you can't get the experience you need to find work in criminal justice and criminology.

Through internships and volunteer work in an industry or job function related to the job of your dreams, you can gain valuable work skills and build the resume you want.

Additionally, you can look at your past employment and educational history to discover you may in fact have the skills employers are looking for. The trick is articulating how those skills translate into experience for the job you want.

Whether you want to be a police officer, crime scene investigator or even a forensic psychologist, with hard work, dedication and creativity you can get the job you've been looking for.
