Cardinal Career Launch: Student Highlight

Angel Rivera, Class of 2021

Career Launch:

Angel landed a position as a crime victims advocate in the Illinois Attorney General’s Office, where he helps victims of violent crime receive financial compensation for expense they incur. Angel interacts with victims, law enforcement agencies, medical institutions and attorneys

The North Central College advantage:

“My courses and the faculty helped prepare me with in-depth knowledge of Illinois laws and statutes and the root causes of crime and social inequality. I learned how to communicate and interact with individuals facing immense distress or traumatic situations. In addition, Cardinal First (For first-generation students) taught me social and organizational skills that I use every day at work. Through members of the College’s Criminal Justice Association, I learned about careers in criminal justiceand probably would not have found the position I am in today. As for my future, whether it’s law school, moving up in the Attorney General’s Office, or going to a federal agency, I know my education at North Central College will make it possible.”
