What is your Ideal Career?
CJ100: Eight Skills of the Effective Criminal Justice Student
Professor Charles Quixley
March 25, 2011
My ideal career goal is to successfully complete all training required to become a proficient source of protection to our nation. My first desire is to become a Police Officer. Then after earning my BS in Criminal Justice, becoming a CSI and eventually working for the FBI as an FBI agent. Becoming a CSI is what I want to accomplish before becoming an FBI agent due to the required experience of becoming an FBI agent. My mission is to make a difference in the lives of others and solving crimes, therefore, those fields are what I need to succeed in doing so.
Why the Criminal Justice System? I chose this path because I have always enjoyed the idea of solving situations. I can honestly say I can’t imagine myself doing anything else because I am extremely fascinated by the role and intensity of these fields. Just watching what it takes to do their job is remarkable. I believe that many people don’t have the potential to choose this profession. Most people are sensitive to seeing blood and dead bodies let alone working hard and working long hours. I have my mind set that I chose this profession because I feel I have what it takes to succeed at it.
A Crime Scene Investigator’s job is to document, identify and collect evidence to solve what has happened at a crime scene. They are subject to bloody crime scenes and homicides and seeing dead bodies at the scene. An FBI agent conducts investigations concerning public corruption, drug trafficking, fraud against the government, terrorism, organized crime, bank robbery, kidnapping and other infringements of federal laws. Both fields are subject to many dangerous situations, work long hours, can be called upon at anytime and have intense working environments. I will be prepared to work as long as needed as well as doing whatever it...
