Search Specific Databases

When looking for journal articles on a specific career there are several possible databases to explore. Logically, you should start with the one focused on criminal justice. After that, it might be necessary to search the others based on the unique characteristics of the specific job you are interested in.   


Search Newspaper Databases

While newspapers do not provide scholarly research on a topic, they are an excellent resource for the latest information on the types of careers with limited openings or fields that will require additional workers in the future. 

Many of the newspapers also include their want ads in the full-text version. This will provide you with ideas on the current requirements for a job and the expected salaries.
