After taking the Holland code test my results were EIS
E= Enterprising- people are good talkers, and use this skill to lead or persuade others. They also value reputation, power, money and status, and will usually go after it.
I= Investigative- people like to think and observe rather than act, to organize and understand information rather than to persuade. They tend to prefer individual rather than people oriented activities.
S= Social- people seem to satisfy their needs in teaching or helping situations. They are different than R and I Types because they are drawn more to seek close relationships with other people and are less apt to want to be really intellectual or physical.
My color results were red, red after taking the birkman test
People with red Interests like hands-on / problem solving job responsibilities and professions that involve practical, technical, and objective activities.

Working in Teams- is the number one skill for this job because for each case you work with different people and different organizations to share evidence
Critical thinking- you have to be able to think outside the box and use what you have to make a conclusion
Problem solving- sometimes you don’t have a lot of evidence and you have to make with what you got and put pieces together
Use of technology- With the evidence you get you have to use all types of technology to find out information about it and do research on it
Multi tasking- This would help you because your not just working on one case at a time you can be working on multiple ones and they can take a lot of time for each case
