I am a senior level .NET software developer in my mid 20s.
However before I got into software development, I had always been interested in military or law enforcement.
I could not join the military because of asthma.
I could not join the police because of color blindness.
However after an idea from a friend and looking it up, I could quite easily take the training classes and get certified to be a private investigator.
The only concern I have, is I want to do something with a specialty in my current skill set (software development).
Does anyone know what things a private investigator does, that they would excel at with a background in software development?
Is there any need for some type of "source code" forensics where I try and determine if source code is copyrighted or malicious?
Is there any use of employers hiring a legitimate software developer with another purpose of their job?
I am not willing to give up my current passion and talent at software development to go to another career in something completely unrelated, but if I can merge the two I would love it!
Just don't know how I can and hopefully someone here has known someone who did this, or has done it themselves to have an idea!
