Career Day



A long-standing tradition within the School of Criminal Justice and Criminology is its annual Career Day. Conducted early in the spring semester for approximately 30 years, the event is essentially a job fair, which is attended by numerous federal, state, and local criminal justice agency representatives.   The event provides an excellent opportunity for students and visitors to discover a wide range of career opportunities within the field of criminal justice, and in some instances to actually begin job application processes with attending agencies. Depending on the specific year involved example agencies would include the following:  F.B.I., Department of Homeland Security, D.E.A., U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Diplomatic Security Service, I.C.E, U.S. Probation Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Parks and Wildlife Service, Texas Attorney General’s Office, Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas/Metroplex area police departments, Travis and Bexar County Sheriff’s Departments and various local adult and juvenile probation departments from the IH 35 corridor. Open to all who wish to attend and held in the L.B.J. Student Center, the event is co-sponsored by the Texas State Office of Career Services, and additional information regarding specific dates, times, and anticipated agency attendees can be obtained in advance through that office and its website.
