Fall Internship Fair a Success
The College of Criminology and Criminal Justice held its second Internship Fair last October in the Broad Auditorium at the Claude Pepper Center. There were ten agencies present and over seventy students were in attendance. There was a large showing of different agencies and companies, including representatives from the following groups: the Public Defender’s Office, the State Attorney’s Office, the Tallahassee Police Department, the Florida Supreme Court, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, and the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy. The College of Criminology and Criminal Justice has decided to make the Internship Fair a bi-annual event, so another fair has been scheduled tentatively for the end of April. Additionally, we plan to invite more agencies in order to give our students even more internship options! Students who did not have the opportunity to attend the Internship Fair in the Fall, please look for the email invite for the Spring Internship Fair. It is a great way to meet with local internship supervisors and to learn about all of the possible internship options. The Internship Coordinator, Leslie Hill, is present throughout the event to offer guidance about how to receive academic credit for an internship. Please direct any questions about the upcoming Internship Fair or other general questions about internships to Leslie Hill.
