Looking for some advice

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of applying for the state police when I become a citizen. I was looking at the application and you have to list every job you've had but...it lists 'state' and 'zip code' for the locations. Would I only give them my American work history then? Seeing as the background check would probably go by my social security number that is all they would know isn't it? Just wondering because I have a vast Canadian work history that I can't even remember all of it. lol

Anyone know what I would have to do?

I HATE miles, gallons, pints, words spelled without u's, and all that other jazz...

Your best bet would be to contact them and ask what they require. They will be doing a criminal background check which will include Canada!! I'm ina RN program, and they searched my Canadian background as well!! One would think for Police it would be fairly thorough. Maryland is actually thinking of allowing permanent residents to become police officers. Best of luck

Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
