(repost from offtopic forum) Title: So... I want to become a cop! *cop crew* I applied for a CSO position (Community Service Officer) yesterday. Basically you get paid 12+ dollars an hour () BUT they pay for your schooling I talked with the HR director for the city of Minneapolis today... there are 8 positions and tons of applicants Basically my chances are slim. I have no "related" work or educational experience. I tested out at the college the other day and did "ok" but it was right after I got off work so I was kinda tired. The two key scores they look at are Reading Comprehension and Sentence skills (so reading and writing) I got 101 and 105 out of 120 on them. (score wise) What's my best bet to go about this?
