Step #1 – Get TRAINED! Online courses at http://www.InternationalSecurityTraining.org work great for former military, law enforcement, or security personal with work experience. For the beginner, spending a couple hundred dollars there will save a person a ton of time and money! Don’t invest thousands in a bail enforcement program until you have basic knowledge. http://www.InternationalSecurityTraining.org gives you that knowledge!
Step #2 – Position yourself correctly! Accept entry-level bail assistant / similar positions with a stable bond company. Work your way up. Ensure your HR file has your certificates.
Step #3 – Be cool with the fact that most employers will require you to go thru their training program. This is for legal & liability reasons. Don’t complain about it. Be relaxed and don’t brag about your time here or your experience there. Your resume should be stacked… your personality should be humble.
Most senior bounty hunters are grumpy when new folks are around. Be ok with that. EARN their respect.
Step #4 – Maintain a positive / helpful attitude. Arrogance & impatience will hurt you faster than almost anything.
Until next time!
