What is a good job that involves investigative work?
I have always enjoyed investigating things and people, finding out more, researching, working out what happened where. Now I am wondering whether there is a good job that involves these skills? I have obviously already considered being a police detective, but what other jobs are there? Are there private detective firms that hire, or do you have to be self employed? Would you need previous experience? What is an insurance investigator like? Do any of these jobs pay well? What other jobs are there that fit these criterion? Thanks for any help you can give guys and girls!!!
