"Not many students can say that they got a job right out of college. I was lucky enough to have this happen to me and thank my professors and the time I spent at Hilbert College for that.
When conducting my first phone interview I was asked questions about forensics to get my basic knowledge. I was able to answer all the questions and ended up getting a job as a latent print technician. As a result of taking classes on fingerprinting, I knew more than some of my new colleagues on different processes that were used to develop fingerprints.
I am fortunate for the knowledge I learned at Hilbert College and hope to use more of it in the future while continuing my career."

"Here, they pretty much do everything we learned about in school. They were excited I knew how to find different angles in relation to blood spatter and that I knew how to properly draw a diagram and knew how to label everything correctly.
So kudos to you guys!"
