Faculty Perspective

I am especially interested in helping students learn how to "market" themselves. I have utilized program and university resources to create innovative video resumes for our students, as well as the course CJS 300 (Career Development in Criminal Justice). I try to be just as concerned about what happens to our students after graduation as I am while they are still with us. I like working with our alumni to develop networking and other methods that help our students realize their goals. I also thoroughly enjoy my work with the internship program. Over the past 4 years we have been able to extend our summer internship placements beyond Ohio's borders to include New York and Tennessee. During the summer of '03 we plan to expand to include Missouri, Nevada and California.
