    Help me find my little sister a job

    She has a bachelors in criminology. She is 24 years old, fluent in Spanish and English and is a few weeks shy of finishing the police academy in Puerto Rico.

    Her plan is to get a few years of experience on the street and apply for something federal.

    Any suggestions?

    What about she tries becoming an MP officer in the Army or tries for CID/OSI/NCIS now?

    My advice, if she hasn't already, is to sign up with People First. I constantly receive job position alerts by email everyday that require the exact credentials your sister has. Credentials I don't have.

    I think that the Florida State Troopers would love to have her. It would be a start.
    I have a a friend whose son became a FST a couple of years ago, now he's looking into the FMAS...Federal Air Marshal Service.

    Air Marshalls were looking for people & may still be. A female would be an advantage. DEA hires many woman and knowing Spanish would sure be an advantage. Any STATE bureau would probably be interested in her as well. Sounds like she's on a good track so far.

    Good luck in this job market, I dont care what sex she is or what languages she speaks. Also, not many local agencies are going to be willing to hire her if her plans are to move on in a few years anyway. There is a huge investment involved, and (sorry ladies, its the truth) women are typically a poor return on that investment anyway. After the dose of reality I just gave you, all is not lost.

    If I were in her shoes with her goals, I'd join the USCG. There are tons of options for somebody like her. They are a federal law enforcement agency, and it will make her goals of moving onto bigger and better things a ton easier when the time comes. Her foot will already be in the door, she will get hiring preference and the time served in the Coast Guard will count towards her retirement and pension. Most people think the coast guard just rescues wayward boaters; that is not true. They have a large investigations section and do just about every aspect of law enforcement there is. It would be a ton of great experiance for anyone looking to get into LE, especially if they want federal.

    That is very good advice...her degree and quals will prob make it very easy to be a comissioned officer, and the transition to any other fed agency she wants would be a snap.
