I'm a 19 year old college student, I'm trying to obtain a job that could help me in the future. Something that I can learn from to help me to become a police officer once I'm the correct age.
To start off, I'm 23 years old and was in the Military as a MP for over 3 years. I have a lot of experience and training and I'm trying to use my experience to get me a job to start a career. And as of now, I am not going for the Park Ranger (Protection/Law Enforcement) positions because I have a lower back problem that might give someone the upper hand if it goes out during a struggle.
I'm trying to get into the Park/Forestry Service and I'm trying to hold off on going to college right now because I know if I start College now, I'm going to be around 28 or so when I finally get a degree, and that's going to put me below a lot of younger adults who already have theirs. Also due to some issues I have, going to school becomes a problem for me.
I go on multiple internship websites applying for Park Ranger internships along with Forestry Service internships. My last intern was my first one and I was a Wildland Firefighter Intern and received many certifications along the way, including Wildland Firefighting, Wildland First Aid, Child/Adult CPR, and more. I've applied for volunteer work, Park Ranger positions at USAJOBS, Internships, and other NPS websites.
I'm not sure what else I can do. There must be people who have got a position within the Park Service without going to college. I didn't think you needed a Degree to clean campsites, or help someone out with information, or to clean utilities, or to drive around and make sure everyone's doing what they're supposed to do, etc. I did what a lot of the Rangers do while in the Service. Most of the questions that are asked on USAJOBS, I'm answering with "I've accomplished without supervision and am considered an expert", or whatever it may be.
Is the ONLY way to get into the Park Service, is obtaining a degree in something? Is that it?
I'm in my third year and its a bit late to turn back now but, after years of thinking I don't think I can go threw with being a cop, even though I have wanted to for a long time. What are some jobs you've had with a CJ Degree? What are out of the box ideas that pay well? Not like probation, patrol, jail work etc. Ideas!
Im 18 from Scotland, and I would like to emigrate to America just to see what its like there when Im finished university, I will be 21 then. I would really like to emigrate to one of the Rocky Mountain states, I would like to work in one of the national parks there such as Yellowstone.
I live in the U.K. and would really like to work in America, but I think getting a visa will be really hard so I was wondering if anyone knew of any organization (maybe theme parks like disneyland or universal studios) that would offer temporary or permanent visa to work for them?
What can you do with a Bachelors degree in Psychology?
And what can you do with a Doctorate Degree in Psychology?
Please answer both questions.
My husband who is 38 has always wanted to do this. So i thought it might be nice to let him give it a go. I can't find information on training/what is required for Ohio.
Private corporations are in charge of the parking meter's in Chicago. And while they didn't build the street, or the meter's or even pay for enforcement (the local tax payer pays for the policing) they do get to collect the money.
What are your thoughts?
And is this a microcosm of a bigger issue, where the cost of production is moved to the tax payer while the private corporation makes the profit?
"For the fifth year in a row, the private managers of Chicago's parking meters are gouging us with another rate hike, and we've retained the title of the most expensive parking meters in the U.S. As if that isn't bad enough, the 2013 price surpasses that of Vancouver's, making Chicago's the most expensive parking meters in North America.
"On-street metered parking rates will increase in 2013 to $2.00 per hour for 82?f the city, $4.00 per hour near downtown and $6.50 per hour in the downtown area," a spokesperson for Chicago Parking Meters, LLC told Chicagoist. The transition will start downtown and move outward with all meter prices rising by the end of February."
Why can't we just deport them or make life so tough on them that they leave? Like every other country on the planet does.
I am 26 yrs old with a BS degree in psychology. I am now halfway through an associates program for my RN, am very stressed out and have doubts about this career path. I know many disillusioned RN's. I want a pleasant but fulfilling career in which I can make decent money. Any suggestions??
Without going on for an advanced degree and/or a 'supplemental' degree.
I wanted to what kind careers you can get with an Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice . I really want to know.
Can I legally carry around an ounce of marijuana?
According to the recently passed initiative, beginning December 6th, adults over the age of 21 will be able to carry up to an ounce of marijuana for personal use. Please note that the initiative says it “is unlawful to open a package containing marijuana…in view of the general public,” so there’s that. Also, you probably shouldn’t bring pot with you to the federal courthouse (or any other federal property).
Well, where can I legally buy pot, then?
The Washington State Liquor Control Board is working to establish guidelines for the sale and distribution of marijuana. The WSLCB has until December 1, 2013 to finalize those rules. In the meantime, production and distribution of non-medical marijuana remains illegal.
Does I-502 affect current medical marijuana laws?
No, medical marijuana laws in Washington remain the same as they were before I-502 passed.
Can I grow marijuana in my home and sell it to my friends, family, and co-workers?
Not right now. In the future, under state law, you may be able to get a license to grow or sell marijuana.
Can I smoke pot outside my home? Like at a park, magic show, or the Bite of Seattle?
Much like having an open container of alcohol in public, doing so could result in a civil infraction—like a ticket—but not arrest. You can certainly use marijuana in the privacy of your own home. Additionally, if smoking a cigarette isn’t allowed where you are (say, inside an apartment building or flammable chemical factory), smoking marijuana isn’t allowed there either.
Will police officers be able to smoke marijuana?
As of right now, no. This is still a very complicated issue.
If I apply for a job at the Seattle Police Department, will past (or current) marijuana use be held against me? The current standard for applicants is that they have not used marijuana in the previous three years. In light of I-502, the department will consult with the City Attorney and the State Attorney General to see if and how that standard may be revised.
What happens if I get pulled over and an officer thinks I’ve been smoking pot?
If an officer believes you’re driving under the influence of anything, they will conduct a field sobriety test and may consult with a drug recognition expert. If officers establish probable cause, they will bring you to a precinct and ask your permission to draw your blood for testing. If officers have reason to believe you’re under the influence of something, they can get a warrant for a blood draw from a judge. If you’re in a serious accident, then a blood draw will be mandatory.
What happens if I get pulled over and I’m sober, but an officer or his K9 buddy smells the ounce of Super Skunk I’ve got in my trunk?
Under state law, officers have to develop probable cause to search a closed or locked container. Each case stands on its own, but the smell of pot alone will not be reason to search a vehicle. If officers have information that you’re trafficking, producing or delivering marijuana in violation of state law, they can get a warrant to search your vehicle.
SPD seized a bunch of my marijuana before I-502 passed. Can I have it back?
Will SPD assist federal law enforcement in investigations of marijuana users or marijuana-related businesses, that are allowed under I-502?
No. Officers and detectives will not participate in an investigation of anything that’s not prohibited by state law.
December 6th seems like a really long ways away. What happens if I get caught with marijuana before then? Hold your breath. Your case will be processed under current state law. However, there is already a city ordinance making marijuana enforcement the lowest law enforcement priority.
I’m under 21. What happens if I get caught smoking pot?
It’s a violation of state law. It may referred to prosecutors, just like if you were a minor in possession of alcohol.
I am from Spain (Barcelona), fully bilingual Spanish-English. I'd like to spend some months/years working in Los Angles (as an electrician, waiter, cleaner, whatever).
I'd like to live in a Mexican/Latin area, not too expensive, not to dangerous, with everything on walking distance ( I got no driving license so I'd have to rely on public transport, and Los Angeles is a city made for cars and not very pedestrian-friendly).
I like to take walks in downtown Barcelona, look at shop windows, take a café in a terrace while watching the people passing by, etc. I am an inner-city guy, I couldnt live in those boring suburban areas where there's only row after row of houses, I am used to live in apartment buildings.
So I guess my first option is downtown LA, or somewhere East Side. But of course I am not suicidal and I wouldnt go to a place with gang activity and meth labs and stuff like that you see in the movies and documentaries. I'd like a place of normal people, families, parks where you can go and relax reading a book, some nighlife scene, and mexican food. (i love it)
So I'd like some advice from a local Angelino, which areas recommend?
How much can cost to rent a room for a single guy like me?
Is it easy to find job? (as I said, I work here in Spain as an electrician, so I woulnd´t mind any type of job)
How much is an average monthly wage?
Thanks in advance!
If possible, what times do they work?
From the upper-class, poor, and from the government.
Why does the middle-class (upper, middle, lower) seems to get attack from all ends? From taxes, to politics!
Where I live there is an area were illegals hang out waiting for daily work. Why doesnt ICE crack down and deport these people.
