  5. 5. USAjobs.gov  General website for career opportunities in the federal government (except the Department of Justice, which has its own non-integrated website)  Some immigration and citizenship restrictions on employment with the federal government (including internships)  Tips:  Because your resumes are screened by a computer for keywords, apply with a full curriculum vitae and not a one-page resume.  Use full names of laws, agencies, etc., and vary the wording in your CV’s text descriptions.  Do not be modest about answering any required questions, but do not lie.  Have a writing sample on file.  FOR INTERNSHIPS (not jobs), each agency has different procedures.
  6. 6. Sample NGOs  African Prisons Project (London and Kampala)  Jamaicans for Justice (Kingston)  Amnesty International (London)  Human Rights Watch (New York)  Coalition for the International Criminal Court (New York and The Hague)  American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (Washington, DC)  Almost always unpaid, but GMU may give class credit. Contact the GMU Center for Global Education.
  7. 7. Study Abroad  GMU has one study abroad program that has criminal justice credit:  King’s College of London (Summer program)  But there are many other GMU study abroad programs that touch on issues of criminal justice and international affairs.  GMU will also accept credit from external study abroad programs, though you have to use private (non-federal) loans to pay tuition.
  8. 8. International Graduate Education  As criminal justice becomes more of an academic/scientific (rather than a vocational) career path, international criminal justice increasingly does too.  Many universities in the United States and worldwide offer master’s degrees in international and comparative criminal justice.  Examples:  Master of Arts in International Criminal Justice – John Jay College of Criminal Justice  Master of Science in Global Crime, Justice and Security – University of Edinburgh  Master of Arts programs in International Criminology /International Justice– University of Sheffield, University of Aberystwyth, University of Greenwich  Master of Arts in Comparative Criminology, Bangor University (Wales)  Many U.S. graduate criminal justice programs offer international/comparative course work
  9. 9. Need Help?  I am happy to look at a resume or a cover letter template  If you do well in the course, I am also happy to write a letter of recommendation  Your paper for this course (on the scholarly article that you choose) would make a good writing sample, so select a topic of professional interest to you
