Bachelor's Graduate in Criminal Justice Seeking Job Advice
Effective as of today, I have finished my last college course, and will soon be presented with a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice.
It's been a long road, but now comes the job hunting. Hopefully that will be a much shorter road.
I've got a few leads I'll be following, but I want to get all the help I can to make a good decision where to apply to (and God willing, get hired by said agency).
First, to clarify, I don't want to be a police officer, or anything related that puts me in potential harm's way. It's not a matter of can't, as I've always been told I'd make a good cop, but I would much prefer working in an office or courtroom somewhere than hitting the streets, where it only takes one punk with a gun to ruin my day.
I would also prefer to find work at my current residence (FL), though I'm not against moving to another state.
Basically, I would like advice on where to start looking. Which agency is hot with demand right now? Where are some places or people I should immediately check out? And to satisfy my curiosity, what are the "cool" jobs in the field? The stuff that's not too far off from Hollywood or Television? I've been told from the beginning that there is a lot you can do with a CJ degree, so I want to try and narrow my choices down to what sounds most appealing (and profitable) to me. This can also apply to other "cool jobs" that aren't related to my degree, but will take a Bachelor's graduate all the same.
I've driven myself crazy looking for jobs in the past, so I want to do this one right. Any advice at all would be most helpful.
