        • I'm a cadet applicant who has a question about the written psych exam, specifically regarding my past psychological history. I used to have suicidal thoughts when I was 18 and was hospitalized for it. I also had to take prescribed medications after that for roughly a year. Since my hospitalization was very stressful, I chose to write about this as my most stressful event at the exam--I dealt with it by simply being calm and hoping to eventually get discharged. Would that alone count against me in the process? If that's the case, what alternatives in civil service are available for me? (As of now I'm still waiting for a call for oral psych and a date to see my investigator)

            I'm sorry, and this may be opinionated, but I can't imagine any police department would hire you because of that history. A good guy I know was immediately disqualified for admitting something similar. If that is the case, don't let it get you down again. Keep going strong as you've been doing. Sanitation could be a good place to look, and it's a great job.

        • rb1152013 I once found out that you must wait years before the DSNY offers more openings, and even if they did offer them now, I would decline. Why? Because I don't think you'll learn anything useful beyond collecting waste on the curb and driving a garbage truck. In the cadets, at least I would be able to learn important leadership skills I currently lack, and IMO I won't be able to learn them from sanitation, much less be a recognizable and positive role model for the community. But let's keep in mind that others might have different perspectives, depending on the type of person.

            I won't fully disagree with you there. Sanitation is good money is all. You are serving your community just in a different way. It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it! Good luck finding what you're looking for

          • TUNEDNIMPORTED If I can't make the cadets for whatever reason, at least I'd like to know about other jobs in which I can interact with people, serve the community, and advance through the ranks. Not only that, I also want to learn how to lead.

              You can do all of this with almost any civil service titles.

                    But I'm a sociology major. And I doubt I'll be able find a true sense of "family" and belonging in any of those three positions.

                    • rb1152013 It's that I just don't know where to go to find what I'm looking for. I looked into the police force not only as a way out of my comfort zones, but also to prove myself--and my family--that I have the strength and will to do the demands of a really tough job. Trust me, I have a clean background and have never done drugs, and I have had a high GPA in college as well. I also never drank alcohol in my entire lifetime. If you're telling me it's likely I won't make the cut due to my past suicidal thoughts, where else should I look to reveal my fullest potential and move out of my comfort zones? Tbh, sometimes I tend to frown upon less demanding careers because they make me feel "weak" compared to my peers, for lack of a better word.

                        This statement shows why you aren’t going to do well.

                          Once again, all I want is a career in which I can be a role model for the community, go above and beyond my comfort zones, and learn how to be a leader.

                          • ANY job can be a “role model”.
