Parole Officer

Odds of Hanging On

The odds of hanging on are good as long as you are able to deal with intense stress. Paperwork may keep you in the office longer than you would like to be. Your caseload may rise up to over 120 cases at one time. You might get threatened every other week. It's all part of the job, but if you want a career that is different every minute of the day then look no further. It's either "parole officer" or "eccentric billionaire playboy." If we helped you narrow things down, you're welcome.
