Career Talk for BCS Interns

‘Just ask questions. When you see someone in the courthouse and you want to know how they got there, don’t be afraid to just ask questions.

‘Career Talk’ luncheons have become a part of the new, formalized internship program at Bronx Community Solutions. These talks provide interns in various stages of their career journeys with a wealth of realistic and concrete knowledge, as well as insight into the variety of career paths open to them within the criminal justice system. The hope is that this will provide career guidance for our interns as well as strengthen BCS's bonds with court players. Since October 2014, BCS interns have participated in organized discussions with a lawyer/social worker, a judge as well as court clerks. Next month the interns will hear from two court officers about their role in the criminal justice system, which is especially appropriate as a few of our interns have taken the court officer civil service exam.
