Probation officers perform investigations on convicted criminals who have yet to be sentenced to help courts decide how far to extend sentencing. People in this line of work also have to communicate well with others, work long and strange hours. They work with people who have been sentenced to probation and come up with community-service projects for them.
Their median salary is $39,900.
