  • I’m 4 months away from graduation!

    So I graduate in November from College Of the Mainland in Texas City, Tx
    and I have started to wonder if I could even get in any department at all..

  • #2
    I've often asked myself if you could ever get into a department as well, but never came up with an answer..

    Here's a hint. We don't have crystal balls. Unless you tell us exactly why you have these misgivings (and lay out all the bloody details) no one here can give you a meaningful response.

    Come on, spill it Maya.

      This isn't ****ing Facebook. You don't post vaguely stupid "woe is me" posts and expect us to feel sorry for you and prod you for answers. Either ask a question or GTFOH.

      Stupid *** kids.

      Why is it acceptable for you to be an idiot, but not acceptable for me to point it out?

          What’s up with all the negativity lol
          I posted a long post with questions and details on why I was worried on getting hired, my guess is not all of it got posted or something went wrong.

            OK, that's two posts and you still haven't explained why you think you won't get hired.

            Here's the deal. In hiring we look for people who are articulate, thorough and pay attention to detail (among other things). You posted your first message saying you were concerned about not getting hired without any explanatory details, leaving us to guess and try to pull facts out of you. That suggests a lack of thoroughness and an inability to be articulate, making you a not too attractive candidate.

            Now you come back and claim your original post had much more detail, which somehow disappeared. (The dog are my homework excuse.) An applicant who was thorough and paid attention to detail would have double checked their post, made sure everything was there and edited if something was missing. Either you failed to do that, again suggesting you are a less than stellar candidate, or your are BSing us, again suggesting.... well, you figure it out.

            OK, so let's look at today's message. Instead of posting the missing details as to why you think you can't get hired so we can give you a meaningful response, you pull a hit and run by making a BS excuse as to why the information wasn't posted the first time and then take off, leaving us guessing once more.

            At this point my thoughts are - Applicant appears to lack the personal traits of dependability, industry, thoroughness, accuracy, good judgment, initiative, and resourcefulness, which are minimum requirements for the position. Recommend disqualification from further consideration.

                And after you have been given a careful and thoughtfully worded response, you still choose not to explain why you think no one will hire you.

                Time for you to move on and look at other professions. Perhaps one where effective communication is not essential to the position. Possibly that of a librarian or an aquarium cleaner.

                    I am not familiar with this process. How did you get into academy without being hired? Academy isn't that bad...the hardest part for me is going to sleep at night because Im way to exited for tomorrow. Like right now.

                      He is just graduating from COLLEGE. not an academy from what I can tell.

                      AND there are many states that will let a person PAY for attending an approved academy (usually through a Community College )and thus make themselves "academy graduates" This " pay for stay "plan has it's ups and downs
                      Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

                      My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

                          There are academies where you pay to go to the academy, graduate as certifiable, then get hired and the department that hires you activates your certification. Almost all academies in Michigan, with the exception of Detroit PD and Michigan State Police which have their own academies, are run this way. The kicker is that they rarely fail anyone. I've heard quite a few horror stories of people that graduated but luckily were not hired because they were horrible in the academy. Luckily, these academies are staffed by local police officers so those stories get back to the perspective departments. There's no guarantee to getting hired and many departments have much stricter standards than the basic MCOLES standards so you can pay $6,000 of your own money and never be a cop.

                            I understand now, they just pass people. Kinda like what Baltimore City was doing.

                              Pretty much. You still have to pass the MCOLES standards, but they're not much harder than the entrance standards. I've heard the final written is a PITA though, but they make you study like crazy for it.
