Job Opportunities for CJ students and graduates

Last Updated May 1, 2015:


The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country.  We've run campaigns for USPIRG, Environment America, the Human Rights Campaign, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and Fair Share Alliance.

This summer, we are running an office in Philadelphia, PA for PennEnvironment to close loopholes in the Clean Water Act.  Loopholes in the law leave 60% of our state's rivers and streams unprotected from pollution.  Currently, more than 20,000 miles of streams are listed as "impaired" meaning that they are so polluted that you can't swim in them or fish from them, and you definitely can't drink the water.  The US Senate will decide the fate of these waterways this summer, and we need to make sure Senator Bob Casey is on the right side of the issue.

This is your chance to spend your summer working for a great cause, while gaining valuable campaign leadership experience and making on average between $9-14/hour.

Anti-Money Laundering task force investigators

JP Morgan Chase needs to hire “hundreds” of investigators over the next couple of years for its Anti-Money Laundering task force.  They are interested in hiring recent UD graduates, including but certainly not limited to criminal justice majors, for entry level positions.  The two representatives from JPMC said that some knowledge of finance or criminal investigation would be helpful, but the skills they emphasized were “higher order thinking,” “analytical,” “think on their feet,” “street smarts,” “attention to detail,” and “natural curiosity.”
