Can past jobs effect being hired for a crime scene investigator?

Brooke G.
Hello. I am currently a student majoring in biochemistry studying to become a forensic scientist. I have recently gotten the opportunity to pose for playboy magazine but I am extremely hesitant due to the fact that I am concerned that it will effect my ability to be hired as a forensic scientist in the future. Is this a factor in being hired as a forensic scientist or crime scene investigator? Thank-you, I appreciate your time.

Brooke—

A background investigation will be done by an agency considering hiring you for a CSI or Forensic Scientist job. They will look thoroughly into your background. When they find you have posed for an adult magazine they are likely to question your judgment. Also most agencies already have enough issues between employees in the work place and would not welcome someone who posed for Playboy magazine—the dynamics could be disruptive in the workplace.

I suggest you use your brain, not your body, to be noticed. You will have a better future.
