Mark Townsend of Parkside was one of several Criminal Justice majors at Neumann University who had the opportunity to meet some of the Delaware Valley’s top professionals in financial crime prevention at a recent recruiting event and panel discussion.
The Delaware chapter of the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) held the event in the Mullen Communication Center on Neumann’s campus and invited students looking for careers in law enforcement to attend and to bring resumes to distribute.
The one-hour meet-and-greet prior to the panel discussion attracted students who are Criminal Justice majors and Intelligence Studies minors. The students mingled with the panelists and about 80 audience members who work at banks, credit unions, accounting and law firms, and law enforcement agencies.
The panel discussion – entitled “Using Intelligence Products for Combatting Drug Trafficking & Money Laundering” – featured several speakers, including:
- Jeremiah Daley, executive director of the Liberty Mid-Atlantic High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area
- Jim Erwin, group supervisor with the Philadelphia Field Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration
- Jamie Maginnis, lead investigator with the law firm Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP
Neumann brings employers to campus throughout the year to give students the opportunity to network with professionals in a variety of career fields. Because of the university’s emphasis on preparing students for careers after college, 85 percent of students graduate with one or more internship experience. Neumann’s office of Career and Personal Development helps students write resumes, sharpen interview skills, and land internships that match their talents.
