Probably not the right attire to wear when interviewing for that Bail Enforcement Gig – Wrong type of Bounty hunter, wrong universe
So if you actually want a job in bail enforcement…
You need to show up in regular street clothes . By regular I mean casual, not chaps and a feather in your hair. Do not wear your body armor and tactical vest with the cross draw holster into my office ! You will be asked to leave immediately!
You should have a resume and references, a copy of your driver’s license and any other license ( i.e. concealed carry , pepper spray , asp , handcuffing , etc) . Most states require a bail enforcement license. If you have this great, if not that’s ok also.
Most bondsman are willing to train the right person. If you are former military or law enforcement list it on the resume. You should not brag about how you are a jump rated Para ninja. You may get the chance to prove yourself later…
Bail enforcement is a lot of really boring time consuming work. You should have the ability to use a computer and write legibly. A lot of the work is done from the desk and the phone. There is a lot of social engineering involved so having the ability to be nice on the phone and in person is a plus.A good grasp of social media , MySpace, Facebook , Twitter etc. helps but is not mandatory. Be willing to do grunt work in the office , answer phones, make coffee, do address checks and so on .

A lot of people have asked me over the years; “Hey doc, how do I, an average Joe, become a high speed medic much like yourself?” After I stop blushing, I tell them, “It’s really pretty easy, there are basically two ways. The first is the civilian route and the second is the military route.”
Let’s talk about the civilian route first. This is how I initially got involved with pre-hospital Para-medicine way back in 1986. First off, a little background, there’s an organization called the (NREMT) National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (www.nremt.org) that has, in conjunction with the Department of Transportation, set national standards for emergency medical responders.
The four levels of certification are; First Responder (FR), EMT-Basic (EMT-B, “basic”), EMT-Intermediate (EMT-I, “intermediate”) and EMT-Paramedic (AKA EMT-P, EMT-Advanced, paramedic, (“paramagic”, “medic”, etc). These certifications are recognized by a majority of the United States (right now there are five states that do not recognize NREMT certification. As of 31 Dec 2009 they are NY, MA, NC, IL, and WY. When in doubt, check with your state health department to find out which certification is required.
