Hi My'Lirea, if you're working for a private investigation agency you could be involved in a number of things. Most agencies handle things like background checks, surveillance, executive protection or undercover operations. You're typically completing multiple tasks in one day across divisions. You could do a surveillance operation for a few hours and then head to a courthouse to do a criminal/civil case records search and then work an undercover operation at a client location all in one day. Some days are longer than others and your start and stop times per day will vary. There is a lot of confidentiality involved so not everyone can know all about your job, which is fun if you like pretending to be James Bond. Eventually, after 3-5 years you would have to decide where to go next but most paths lead to local or Federal law enforcement.
