Justice & Public Safety on Prince Edward Island – Hiring practices
After interviewing a corrections officer, this sector was added to the EJ website and we continue to provide coverage in these career choices. The interview was a very good insight into all the career choices and opportunities in this field on PEI. Of course this sector covers many other careers that have strong employment potential such as policing, border security, and more.
Kim Kempton was Warden/Manager of the Provincial Correctional Centre for seven years and is now retired. Her journey to this field started over 30 years ago. After high school, she took a gap year. “I did not know what I wanted to do as a career, and I needed time to work it out.”
She worked as a waitress for a year, and then went to a small college in Vermont, USA, where she earned a bachelor degree in Human Resource Management. “The four-year degree in HR management was a springboard to great careers,” says Kim.
