I find private detectives cool and I fancied their abilities to uncover clues left behind by the perpetrator to solve the investigation at hand. The private investigator had this innate sense on who the suspect was and how to catch the perpetrator in the act and be the hero at the end of the story. In addition, the investigator had cool gadgets and ingenious plan when called upon to pursue the wrongdoer. If you like adventure and like solving mysteries like me and want to make a good Singapore Private Investigator, please read on to find out the qualities clients look for in a private investigator or how to make it in the private investigation field.
First and foremost, to make it as a Singapore private investigator, and become a highly respected investigator among your peers, then you need to have a solid education background in the area of private investigation you would like to specialize in. If it is conducting criminal investigations, then you may consider attaining a post secondary qualification in Criminal Justice; if it is in fraud and insurance matters, a post secondary qualification in Insurance and Fraud Investigation. Post Secondary Education is a key requirement and no client would want to hire a private investigator who has no rock-solid formal training in his or her area of expertise.

After all the necessary training is attained, you are ready to work on all the other qualities.
You have gotten all the professional qualifications out of the way and you think that is all the client would need to hire you. Hold your horses! There are many other characteristics and qualities that you have to cultivate in order to make you stand out and be considered one of the best Singapore Private Investigator. Education alone cannot get you there; you should also have the capability to use logic in your thinking and analyze information provided and situations surrounding your enquiry rationally. Logical thinking is a process in which you, as a private investigator, are able to show the relationship between facts and the chain of reasoning used to come up with the conclusion you made. Whatever conclusions you derive from the investigation have to make sense and be backed up by concrete facts. You should have the capacity to envisage, articulate, and decipher both simple and multifaceted problems and make intelligent decisions based on the evidence gathered.
Great attention to detail and keen observation skills is also necessary for one to become a good Singapore private investigator. When you are out on the field or perusing documents, you should be able to notice inconsistencies as well as the missing links in the investigation. Private investigation is like solving a puzzle and if you miss a single piece or put one in a wrong place, the puzzle will remain unsolved. As a private investigator, you may be required to carry out interviews in the course of your investigation so you will need sharp observational skills. Most of the time it is what is not said or what is not seen that is the key to solving the case, so a good private investigator has to be alert on what is going on in his or her surroundings and also have the ability to decipher verbal and non-verbal cues, as well as be able to read body language. Be keen, use logical thinking, have a solid educational background and have a love for solving mysteries and having an adventure: this is a recipe that will make you a good private investigator!!
