Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is hosting a Corrections Career Fair from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 19, in the amphitheater and student commons area on campus. The event is open to the public and admission is free.
The Corrections Career Fair is designed to provide information about the wide range of career opportunities available in the Corrections industry. According to Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry statistics, the average wage of correctional officers in northeastern Minnesota is $22.96 per hour.
Representatives from 15 local, regional, state, and federal corrections agencies and organizations will be present to discuss current and future job openings and the type of training and background qualified applicants should possess. For prospective college students and people who are considering a career change into the field of Corrections, the Corrections Career Fair is an excellent opportunity to learn more about career employment opportunities and where to receive the necessary training.
Representatives from the Corrections program at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will highlight and explain the classroom training and skills training components of the degree program at the college. Informational displays and exhibits related to Corrections are also part of the expo.
For more information, contact Cassandra Nicholson at 218-879-0846.


I chose FDLTCC for a fresh start in life. It had been two years since I graduated High School and I wanted more than just working a 9-5. I was living in Florida at the time, and I had an opportunity to travel the world doing what I love playing the game of basketball.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

FDLTCC offered me a supportive environment I couldn't pass up, everyone and everything here at school is trying to help you succeed, from the programs, to the faculty, to the resources.
