ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) Agent
Odds of Hanging On
The odds of hanging on are pretty good. Agents are promoted frequently—every year or two, depending on their performance. Following ATF guidelines and employing excellent problem-solving skills will help you rise in the ranks. It also helps if you don’t have any annoying habits that would keep your superior from wanting to advance you. Wait until you get home to cut your nails.
