Indianapolis, Ind. (March 9, 2016) — Corrections Corporation of America, which oversees Marion County Jail II, is again partnering with Harrison College’s downtown campus, for a job fair this Wednesday, March 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., to recruit and hire more than 30 correctional officer positions and other key staff roles needing to be filled at the facility.
Recruiters will be on-site to interview candidates, and correctional officers will be present at the campus, located at 550 E. Washington Street, to answer attendees’ questions about day-to-day experiences. Select candidates will be shuttled to Jail II to tour the facilities. Contingent job offers may be made on the spot.
Starting salaries for correctional officers is $12.89/hour and $14.55 for sergeants, with all employees working a 12-hour shift.
Harrison is hosting the job fair, open to anyone with a high school diploma or GED who is interested in learning more about the field of criminal justice. Harrison admissions representatives will be on hand to provide information regarding Harrison’s criminal justice degree programs, which can be completed on ground at the downtown campus, online or through a blended program.
“We hosted a CCA job fair earlier this year, and that successful partnership has resulted in employment and education benefits for the Indianapolis community,” said Ryon Kaopuiki, campus president of the Harrison College downtown campus location. “Not only is this an opportunity to find employment, but to also see the opportunities for advancement in this field through Harrison’s criminal justice programs.”
