    I've been reading TB for a while now and realised advice is often very good and true, so - i plea for you to open my eyes to the world and perhaps even set my career off.
    I'm in London and am currently studying A levels; physcology (excuse sp im tired), Sport Science and History.
    I am interested in police work and that sort of thing but i have no idea of the hirachy or grades/work needed/required. Also i'm a VERY keen sportsman, having been an ambassador for my county/region/country(once) many times. Bass guitar player before people say, is very far fetched for me - a hobby, not life is bass playing for me :)

    Any ideas, advice or just general blargh, go for it! My mind is open to your advice TB!
    Many thanks,

    Have you considered taking work as a Gigolo, or maybe a Pimp? I've always thought those fields sounded interesting and they seem to make a lot of money. I've heard that being a Cat Burglar can be quite profitable. I honestly don't know how you make much money at all steeling cat's, but I'm just going off of what I've heard. If none of that appeals to you, you might look into a career in forgeries and money laundering or possibly even consider choosing your own career path. I don’t know, these are just my thoughts...

    If you want to be a cop, go to the police recruiting and find out what they look for. Talk to their forensic department and ask what they look for.
