Private investigating involved a lot more than Ithought it did. I had no clue they dealt with identity theft,illegal downloads, or frauds. I want to go into technology,and have never thought of this as a career for me. Thiscould be my fall back or second choice for a career. I havesome skills that would be useful in that career such aswriting, researching, and helping people. If I did go into this career I expect it to give me evenbetter people skills, and more thorough researching skills.This career has characteristics I wouldn’t enjoy doing suchas surveillance, fraud cases, and illegal downloadsearches. On the other hand being able to reunite peoplewith their missing loved ones would be its own reward.The only reason I would try this career is because ofwatching a TV show called Psych. In the show they makeprivate investigating seem fun and interesting.
