Self defense? Recruiting? Marketing class promotes FBI recruiting event

by Kalamalama staff

 

FBI recruiters and students in an HPU graduate marketing class hosted two events in November to recruit students for FBI special agents and professional support positions.

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.
