Waynesburg University’s Career Services Office hosted an on-campus recruitment event with the CIA Thursday, March 14, for the third consecutive year.
The event offered students a question-and-answer session as well as opportunities for students to network with CIA officers. Separate one-on-one sessions were also held for pre-selected students.
“We were very fortunate to have the CIA on campus again for 2019,” said Marie Coffman, director of Career Services and Placement. “Their Informational Session is always filled with great information for all majors to hear what types of positions are available and how to apply. We strive to have our students exposed to many types of employers and the CIA brings another great opportunity for employer interaction to Waynesburg.”
Ryan Lemmon, a senior political science major from Uniontown, Pennsylvania, who had a one-on-one advising session, said the event was beneficial.
“It gives students an opportunity to meet with representatives from a highly selective agency,” Lemmon said. “At the very least, it gives them interview experience and exposes them to the fact that there are other options for criminal justice majors aside from policing and probation.”
In addition to Waynesburg University, students from Duquesne University, La Roche College, Muskingum University, Saint Francis University, Saint Vincent College, Washington & Jefferson College and West Virginia Wesleyan College attended the event.
Waynesburg criminal justice administration majors have a history of earning a number of posts with federal agencies. Recent graduates have been employed by the Federal Bureau of Investigations, United States Secret Service and United States Customs and Border Patrol.
Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is one of only 22 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
