Northwestern College’s Criminal Investigations class this fall is benefitting from a partnership with the Bridgeview Police Department. Bridgeview detectives will be visiting the Investigations class three times during the quarter so as to share their real life experiences with students who are seeking careers in the field of criminal justice. The particular focus of the visits will be on the mechanics of criminal investigations and the role of detectives during the course of such investigations. Last week the first visit was by Detective Daniel Matuszak, a fifteen (15) year veteran of the Bridgeview Police Department.
Northwestern College’s Bridgeview Campus (7725 S. Harlem Avenue) recently served as the host location for two of the Illinois Student Assistance Commission’s (ISAC) free, one-day workshops: Financial Aid 101 (for new financial aid professionals) and Financial Aid 201 (for more experienced financial aid professionals). Approximately 20 people attended each of the two workshops in Bridgeview, which ISAC holds quarterly throughout the state, and which are frequented by financial aid professionals from all over Illinois. Last week’s workshops were attended by representatives of Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights; Chicago Public Schools; Business Continuity Institute (BCI) Training; Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills; Roosevelt University; DePaul University and Sauk Valley Community College of Dixon, Illinois. Northwestern College has consistently opened up its institution at no cost to ISAC for these and other similar workshops.

Many companies use telephone interviews as an initial screening tool in order to save their time and your time. You need to treat the telephone interview like any other face-to-face interview, since you won’t make it to a face-to-face interview if you don’t pass the telephone interview. Most telephone interviews last 20 to 30 minutes with either one person or several people interviewing you.
“Behavioral” interviews began to appear in the Chicago labor market in the mid-1990s. Employers in the financial services industry were the first to begin using this form of interviewing. Medical employers were next to adopt it. Today, it can be found in all industries and at all levels of the job market.

Health Information Management (HIM) has been a recognized healthcare profession for more than 90 years. During most of that time, the business of HIM was conducted in a paper-based environment. The patient’s medical record was composed of paper forms created by all parts of the hospital. The documents were collated, indexed, and filed in a very predictable method. Running a HIM department in California was just like running a HIM department in Virginia.
Northwestern College’s Bridgeview Campus (7725 S. Harlem Avenue) recently served as the host location of the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center’s (NCTC) 3-day course entitled, “Introduction to Narco-Terrorism”, which was co-sponsored by the Illinois Tactical Officers Association (ITOA). NCTC has regularly offered these courses as well as others at No Charge to law enforcement agencies, making them valuable training tools for departments to take advantage of. Northwestern College has regularly provided its facilities at No Charge for NCTC and law enforcement, as it did this month, so as to assist with the facilitation and access to training in order to keep local law enforcement officials current on techniques, trends, and tactics, despite whether or not a department has funds to conduct such training for its officers.
