Buying a First Home

After 10 years of marriage, I’m still enjoying living in the first home I moved into with my husband. Buying a first home can be one of the most exciting events in a person’s life. Before making this important expenditure, people need to first sit down and determine how they will successfully finance it. After all, a home will likely be the most expensive purchase you make in your life. Talk to a loan officer and determine how much money you can reasonably borrow. Then, decide how much money you want to use as a down payment. You also must decide how many years you will finance your home for. On this blog, you will learn about the process of buying a first home with a loan.

Important Attributes To Possess As A Fugitive Recovery Agent

Irma Bates

If you're interested in joining the bail bonds industry, there are several jobs that you might wish to consider. One position is to work as a fugitive recovery agent, in which you can work for a bail bonds agency or perhaps for a separate company that frequently partners with specific bail bonds agencies. Beyond being licensed to work as a fugitive recovery agent — colloquially known as a "bounty hunter," — there are a number of attributes that you must possess and being able to identify on your resume and during your job interview. Here are some attributes that you'll ideally have.

Communication Skills

Most people can communicate, but fugitive recovery agents need to be highly skilled in this area because they'll frequently be talking to bail jumpers and people in distress. You can demonstrate your communication skills during the interview by listening carefully to the interviewer's questions, asking for clarification if you need it, and then answering directly. If you really want to show yourself to be a skilled communicator, you might wish to enroll in a communication training course. Such courses are widely available in person and online, and will show the bail bonds agency with which you're interviewing that you're dedicated to being a good communicator.

Self-Defense Skills

Ideally, you'll be able to detail most of your targets without the use of physical force. However, this isn't always the case. While fugitive recovery agents cannot use the same degree of force as law enforcement officers, you need to be physically strong and capable of protecting yourself, protecting your target, and those around him or her. It's ideal if you can demonstrate such attributes by listing on your resume that you're formally trained in some manner of self-defense. For example, perhaps you hold a brown belt in a certain martial art.

Technology Knowledge

Fugitive recovery agents also have to be skilled with technology. This can range from using the internet to search for online traces of their targets to using camera gear and other recording devices during investigations. There are ways to make this knowledge stand out on your application. For example, you could take a photography course at a local junior college for a weekend. This will clearly show that you know how to use a camera and are skilled with it. You can also talk about any experience you have with using the internet for research. Even if it's not related to searching for a person, this can show that you're an adept internet user.
