  • How does one get this LEO gig?

    I'm posting in CA because of CA's uniqueness.

    http://www.corp.ca.gov/jobs/pdf/inve..._ENF_SO_LA.pdf

    http://www.corp.ca.gov/ENF/about.asp

    OK, now that I’ve found something that is so perfect, so narrowed to someone like myself and yet I seem to be disqualified from applying because of CA’s application processes for state jobs.

    Me:
    1) MBA in Finance
    2) CFA
    3) At one point I registered with the department of Corporations of CA as an independent Investment Advisor (giving me the right to create a mutual fund as an independent business).
    4) Police academy grad.

    I just don’t get it. The system prevents me from applying for these kinds of positions, but I can apply for regular police officer gigs that pay twice as much that I’m less of an ideal candidate for.

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr…………….

    Looks like that was written for current employees, or applicants who already made it to an eligibility list WHEN it WAS open...

    WHO MAY APPLY – State employees who are currently at the Corporations Investigator level, those within transfer range or individuals with list eligibility that is reachable (in the top three ranks) and employees with Surplus or SROA status are encouraged to apply.
    From the Corporations Investigator job description:
    MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

    CORPORATIONS INVESTIGATOR

    Either I
    Education: Equivalent to a four-year degree from college with a
    major preferably in criminal justice, administration of justice, or
    police science. (Registration as a senior in a recognized
    institution will admit applicants to the examination, but they must
    produce evidence of graduation or its equivalent before they can be
    considered eligible for appointment.)
    Or II
    Experience: Two years of experience in investigative work; and

    Education: Equivalent to two years of college. (Additional
    qualifying experience may be substituted for the required education
    on a year-for-year basis.)

    Or III
    Experience: One year of experience in the California state service
    performing the duties comparable to those of an Investigator
    Assistant or in an investigation assignment in the class of
    Management Services Technician, Range B. Applicants who are being
    considered for Corporations Investigator positions assigned "Peace
    Officer" status (as determined by California state law) must possess
    the educational equivalent to completion of the twelfth grade.
    (Applicants who have completed six months of service as an
    Investigator Assistant or six months at Range B of the Management
    Services Technician will be admitted to the examination, but they
    must satisfactorily complete one year of experience in either of
    these classes before they can be considered eligible for
    appointment.)
    There are other similar options available for someone with your background.

    Check FDIC for Compliance Examiner OR Compliance Analyst http://www.fdic.gov/about/jobs/do.html#ce

    Check IRS for Revenue Agent http://jobs.irs.gov/car_accounting.html

    There are still chances for you to find an investigative position using your business / finance background.

      Thanks. I wasn't specifically looking to be a "regulator" or one who protects the system. I'm more interested in helping individuals from victimization.

        Sounds like they are trying an in house recruitment first, probably trying to help some people avoid being laid off.

        I would put in an interest card if they let you. They will go outside someday.
