Job Opportunity – Correction Officer. If you are looking for a good job but don’t want to get a college degree you might want to consider being a correctional officer. It’s not the easiest job in the world, you do have to be willing to work around inmates. But the job can pay fairly well, at least at the middle class level. Stay away from the private prisons. They pay pennies. They are for-profit organizations and the last thing they want to do is give a decent pay to their employees when the owners can keep that money for themselves. Go with the government run facilities. Not only do they pay better but they also have better benefits.
A correctional officer is not just for men. There are facilities for women that need female officers. This video gives a good idea of what it is like to be a correctional officer and how they deal with inmates.
