Answer
Brittany:

First of all, here are two good resources to help you:

1.  A Federal job description on Private Investigations
2.  You can download a free copy of our Private Eye Handbook which explains a lot about what we do:

http://www.tacticsone.com/NewHandbook2005.exe

Here are our answers:

a. Like it a lot

b. Long hours, little time for vacations, etc.

c. Up very early and as you can tell, up late...  A lot of phone calls, coordination with other P.I. firms, case management and investigative work.

d. Have owned my own business for a long time so there are really no advancement opportunities for myself.  Usually there are good opportunities for someone starting into this career.

e.  N/A

f. 5am -12 midnight, 6 or 7 days a week.

g. Yep

h.  There really is no other career choice for me but if I absolutely had to, probably someting in Homeland Security...

Good luck!
