4 Overview of Crime Scene Investigator Jobs W ant a career in criminal justice? I don t blame you! Crime scene investigator jobs pay well & are stable. Start here with CSI job information & online schools Criminal justice careers cover a vast array of fields in the detection and interpretation of evidence left behind at the scene of a crime. Unlike what you may have heard from shows on television or mystery and suspense novels, there is no single CSI (crime scene investigator) position. Instead, CSI is an entire department of officials, officers, forensic scientists, and technicians that work together in different areas to come to the same conclusion: whodunnit and how. If you are interested in taking on one of the many crime scene investigator jobs out there, you should first decide in which field you d most like to participate (and for which you may have a high aptitude) and then figure out how to pursue that choice. In the following sections, we ll discuss the many different types of crime scene investigator jobs that are available and how you might go about getting yourself involved in one. Crime Scene Investigator Jobs: Criminal Justice Career Choices 4

5 Asking what is there to choose from? about crime scene investigator jobs is like asking how many are there? about all the shades of all the colors in the world. The number of positions dealing with criminal justice crime scene investigation is so high it is near astronomical. Just to name a few, there are: Forensic photographer jobs Detective jobs Latent fingerprint analysis jobs County and state police jobs Sheriff s department jobs FBI jobs Forensic bioloigist jobs Forensic scientist jobs And so many more So, the first question you need to answer for yourself is in regards to where you think your strengths are. Are you good at science? Biology? History? Physical fitness? Are you a team player or do you like to work independently? Are you okay with blood or would you rather never see another drop for as long as you live? Click here to continue reading article Paralegal Careers 5

6 I f you are in the market for a career as a legal secretary, you're in luck! So many paralegal jobs are available in the world today. But there are some things to keep in mind. The more educated, qualified, and trained you are, the more likely you will be hired. Especially in today's competitive economic climate, employers want to make sure they are hiring people who are perfect for the job. In order to make yourself perfect for the jobs, you need to make sure you have all the education and experience you possibly can. 6 Requirements for Paralegal Careers While it isn't exactly a requirement, a lot of employers today are looking to hire people who have either a degree in paralegal studies or have taken post secondary education classes in applicable fields to fill their paralegal jobs. This means that you need to make sure you have the training to impress the people in power. You can earn an associate's degree in paralegal studies from community college or online quite easily. It's what I did to earn my paralegal certificate and it helped get me a great paralegal job! With this degree and the completion of a professional training program or two, you shouldn't have the slightest problem earning a paralegal salary every year.

7 Other skills that are necessary to a paralegal job description are: Research ability Interview skills Good writing and communication Work well under time constraints Computer literate Great Knowledge of legal terminologies and principles Proofreading skills with regards to legal documents A lot of information these days is stored on computers and the Internet, so it is doubly important that you are able to efficiently work on one. 7 Traditional & Online Paralegal Schools You can get a degree in paralegal studies from a vast variety of schools all over the country. While you can go to a university, college, or community college to get this degree by attending classes all weeklong and going into massive debt, this isn't your only option. And, frankly, it may not be the best one--especially if you live on a tight budget and/or have a family. When I decided to become a paralegal, I was in my mid-40s. I just didn't have the kind of lifestyle (family, house, dependence on income) that would accommodate me going away to college for four years. So I decided to earn my degree online. And it was one of the best decisions of my life.

9 Fun Forensic Science Activities For Kids T eaching forensic science for kids is a great way for children to learn without them knowing. Learn some fun forensic science experiments & activities for kids A great introduction to forensic science to kids is to show them a few experiments that they can do on their own that directly relate to the crime scene investigation field. Kids love mysteries and great detective stories. And what s cooler than reading those or watching them on TV? Being a part of one! Below, I ll show you a couple of great forensic science experiments for kids that ll keep them entertained while teaching them something cool and new. Introduction to Forensic Science for Kids So, what is forensic science anyway? Forensic science is a term that covers an enormous number of criminal justice employees (from number crunchers, to scientists, to doctors, to great thinkers) that all work together to solve a crime. Forensic science covers all of these departments and more: Fingerprint Analysis DNA Profiling 9

10 Firearms (Guns) Study Detective Work And much, much more Working together, people in these fields look at, study, compare, and eventually interpret pieces of evidence from a crime scene to find out what happened, where it happened, who it happened to, how it happened, and, if they ve done their work well enough, whodunit. So, let s take a look at some forensic science for kids activities that ll better help you and your children to understand what it s all about. Forensic Science Experiments for Kids Here are two great forensic science for kids experiments that will help develop the skills necessary to one day become a great forensic scientist! Forensic Science Experiments for Kids #1 The Family Room Crime Scene For this activity, the first thing you want to do is block off the doorways to your family room. No one gets in except for you. Because this is a crime scene! Equipment Needed: Plenty of plastic baggies A pair of gloves Tweezers 10

11 Pen Labels Magnifying glass Your job is to go over this room inch by inch to discover just what went on in here. The clues that you gather will help you to create a story of who did what, when and where. Pick up anything you may see that will help to tell this story, including: Hair fibers Half-eaten potato chips Discarded trash Fingerprints Or anything else that may help you develop the plot Collect all of your evidence in plastic baggies, carefully label them, and set them aside for further investigation in your crime lab (aka, kitchen). What you find out from the crime scene entirely depends on how closely you look at the details. So be alert! (Note: The Family Room Crime Scene could just as easily be called The Kitchen Crime Scene or The Bathroom Crime Scene. You can play this game anywhere!) Click Here To Continue Reading Article 11
