Okay - I recently applied for my first LEO position with the local Sheriff's Department. 75 applicants and 3 jobs. I managed to pass both the written and physical tests, but still didn't get a job interview. I have no applicable experience and no training. What would you do to beef up your resume in my shoes? My ideas: EMT Basic Cert. Apply to local PD and put in a couple years. Keep and eye open for detention positions w/ the Sheriff's Department Pay my way through the Academy What would be the most valued and efficient in terms of time/money? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
