Personal safety and exciting career options were the focus
for the two events, held Nov. 15 and 22 at Gold’s Gym.
Students and professionals interested in a FBI career were
invited to self-defense classes and yoga cooldown sessions.
On Nov. 22, particpants also had chance to meet and talk to
an FBI agent.
This was an outstanding opportunity for university students
and professionals in Hawai‘i to learn about career possibilities
within the FBI at an educational and enjoyable event,” said
FBI special agent, Kal Wong.
Recruiters provided information on specific career opportunities
that required such critical skills as engineering, computer
science, fluency in a foreign language, law, and experience
in the intelligence, law enforcement, or military fields.
The self-defense classes and information sessions were the
culmination of a semester-long effort by Ideal Current Marketing
Solutions, a group of 26 HPU graduate students who particpated
in the FBI Collegiate Marketing and Recruitment Program as
part of their requirements in a Marketing 6000 class.
The program is a unique industry-education partnership that
gives students the opportunity to apply their classroom work
in a real-world situation,” said the instructor, Assistant
Professor of Marketing, Dr. Joseph Ha.
