Summary

Criminal Justice Internships: Theory into Practice, 9th Edition, guides the student, instructor, and internship site supervisor through the entire internship process, offering advice and information for use at the internship site as well as for pre-planning and assessment activities. With more and more programs offering or requiring internships as a graduation requirement, McBride offers students a means of enhancing their credentials and gaining a foothold in a competitive job market.

Students learn basics such as choosing an internship site at either a public agency or a private firm, résumé writing techniques, effective use of social networks, interviewing skills, and the importance of setting and developing goals and assessing progress. The book also serves as a reference tool for professors and supervisory personnel who assist and supervise students during their internships. Divided into four sections—Pre-internship Considerations, Professional Concerns, Role of the Organization, and Assessment and Career Planning—this book offers resources to enrich the experience of the student and lay the foundation for future professional success. Suitable for all Criminal Justice, Justice Studies, and Pre-law undergraduate programs, Criminal Justice Internships is useful as well in Social Sciences programs with a service-learning component.
