Weary Helper: From Private Investigator to Librarian
I was previously employed as a Certified Criminal Defense Private Investigator. Now I am a professional librarian. Whenever librarians discover my previous job title, they immediately ask why I would leave such an intriguing field to become a librarian.

My father finally convinced me that being an investigator was too dangerous, especially since our firm exclusively handled murder and drug investigations for
