Bail Agent Resume Samples

A Bail Agent is a surety, who retrieves those fugitives who don’t report for the court dates. A well-drafted Bail Agent Resume mentions the following core duties and tasks – visiting and interviewing suspects in the jail and getting needed information on the bail requirements; assessing the defendant’s qualification for bond and taking decisions on bailing them out; assessing the ability of the client to pay fees and honor the court’s summon; collecting fees from defendants and processing paperwork; and locating absconding defendants.

Summary of skills that can highlight a resume – knowledge of the U.S Criminal and Civil Law, experience in processing post and posting bail bonds; valid driving license; the ability to understand and complete court formalities; and the ability to multitask. While a degree is not a mandatory requirement, possessing a pre-licensing training course certificate will be useful. Some states necessitate valid licensure as well.
