More than half of U.S. workers are unhappy in their jobs. That’s because most of us don’t want “just a job”. We want a career that makes an impact. Yet, turning an inherit desire to make this world a better place into a successful occupation feels harder than it should be.
You have strong leadership skills, intuitive nature, passion, commitment and good communication. However, not all jobs come with the career advancement or the pay and benefits that you deserve. Plus, not all jobs come with opportunities to relocate or change the pace of your workday.
The good news – it’s never too late to make a change. Public service is often a logical choice that combines opportunities to make a living while enhancing the lives of others.
Law enforcement careers offer purpose, a chance to be a valued and respected member of a tight-knit team and you can still carry out your pursuit of public service with endless opportunities to make a difference.
The California Highway Patrol is among the most elite law enforcement agencies in the world and offers opportunities to do all of that and more. As a CHP officer, you can make a difference in your community while getting a comfortable income and the opportunity to grow.
The CHP offers many different career paths to suit your passion in life and one of the best compensation packages in the state, including comprehensive medical, dental and vision coverage for officers and their family. Not to mention, the average starting salary lies in the high $90,000s. That doesn’t even account for specialty pay incentives for things like having a degree or speaking another language.
