Private detectives and investigators provide a variety of services to attorneys, businesses and the public. Their duties often include performing physical surveillance, interviewing witnesses to gain information, and drawing conclusions regarding the subjects’ behavior.

The work hours associated with this profession are often long and irregular. It is common for investigators to spend most of their time away from their offices and out in the field.

Many investigation jobs remain with large government agencies; however, the growth in private industry is providing many bright opportunities for those interested in working in an exciting yet demanding arena. Requirements to become an investigator vary, however, those with a college degree in Criminal Justice or a related fieldfare much better than those without.
