    End of College Looms...

    ...and I am caught with my pants down. I have one more year. I will graduate next summer with a BS in Criminology from Florida State University. I have NO idea what I am doing after school.

    I have thought of joining an armed force, but I just dont think it is the right thing for me.

    Throughout college, I was fully expecting to become a police officer, but recently I have decided that that as well, is not me.

    Recently I have been pondering becoming a firefighter, and this option seems to be a quite possible one. Amra, any thoughts on this for me?

    Other than that, I have no idea what I could do. What are some common "just out of college" jobs?

    Any college is better than the crap community college I'm going to at the moment. Friend of mine went to University of Tampa Bay before moving back to Paris. Said he liked it but too expensive.

    Yeah, a guy I work with went to U of Tampa, but said he got tired of all the rich kids with Porsche's and Lexus driving around. I didnt even realize Tampa was that expensive.

    The JET program interested me for a short while, but I just dont know about the culture shock. PLF and Durf at least had some Japanese knowledge prior to their move I believe, heh.

    Counseler for incarcerated minors

    Ombudsman for a police department

    The Coast Guard is always looking for new officer material. A criminology degree woudl really help in interdiction missions

    I'm sure there are also jobs for criminologists in the corporate world. Ensuring that that company policies don't violate laws.

    What about accident recreation?

    Hollyweird. Be a consultant to a studio.

    There are lots of jobs for criminologists.

    Amra, hopefully you will see this:

    If my memory serves correctly, you are a firefighter. If not, disregard this PM.

    I have been considering this line of work lately, and I am coming up on graduation in about a year, so I feel I need to attain some direction. I was wondering if you could give me some pros and cons of being a firefighter.

    Is it hard on family life? 24 on 48 off I believe?

    Is it fulfilling work?

    Is it overly stressful?

    I just dont know all that much about it. If you could just give me some guidance on the subject, I would really appreciate it. I know there will be massive variation from region to region and department to department, but if you could just give me the basics, I would be greatly appreciative.


    Sorry about the personal message, but his PMs were full. Anybody who knows about firefighting of course can chime in as well.
