Have you thought about Parapsychology? That may be something worth studying to get in to the field as it covers many areas of paranormal,
As with any carer in the "offbeat" topics you need to gain as much experience as you can,
Find out local ghost hunts check out paranormal meet up groups, learn and gain as much knowledge as you can,
Then you can hopefully bump in to an opportunity that gets you in to the door of paranormal work, be it studies on phenomenon's ect
You may also think of doing some basic science course to help you.
If your really serious too i would start getting an idea of some equipment that may be helpful..As listed below
"camera, a notebook, a tape recording device and a flashlight. More experienced paranormal investigators invest in EMF detectors or meters which pick
up disturbances in electric and magnetic fields."
