The Woodbridge Campus held its annual Law Enforcement Job Fair for NOVA students on March 3. The fair attracted more than 35 local, county, state, federal, military and private agencies involved in criminal justice, policing and federal investigative activities. Agencies represented included local and distant criminal justice agencies as well as the FBI, CIA, Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals Service, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
In a relaxed environment about 1,000 students met with agency representatives to discuss academic and personal preparation, hiring projections, agency functions and the benefits of a lifelong career in law enforcement.
The Woodbridge Campus Criminal Justice Club has organized and sponsored this event for more than 25 years with assistance from Administration of Justice faculty. This is the largest job fair of its type in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Preparations begin months before the job fair.
