I'm thinking about becoming an FBI agent, doing criminal apprehension or investigative work, ideally some combination. Problem is, I'm currently a last-semester senior in college (too old for the internship program) and I did a music and business major. I'm set up to get a good job working in Japan (I'm American) in B2B marketing, so that satisfies the language requirement. Aside from getting gud at Japanese and getting in shape what can I do to be a more viable candidate?
FBI job is not as glamour as the media portrays it to be. Plus it pay meh, and they will do a full-scope background check which is were most people fail. One arrest record will ruin your chances in getting a job. Even minor things like parking tickets can ruin your chances in those types of jobs. If you want to become a special agent then you need a high GPA from college and most likely a masters degree. All the trouble for a shitty wage is why no one applies for those jobs. You're better off in teh private sector.
Ah yeah I should pass that, never even gotten a parking or speeding ticket. It looks like the starting pay is $60k/year which is actually higher than I can expect for whatever marketing job I get straight out of college, so if we're being honest it's not that bad.
It goes by GS level and step. So each GS has multiple steps. It's also dependent on locality.
This is for DC.
Your GS is determined by your civilian education and level of experience.
I have military intelligence experience and a degree, so I would start higher than someone being hired with only one of those two things (hypothetically, you can't get hired federally without a degree).
Note that one of the 5 requirements is language, precisely why I mentioned Japanese, as it will be useful (at least one Yakuza clan has tried to expand its operation into NA in the last year) and far less common than Spanish.
Not even going to read it because on phone but if anything those are MINIMUM requirements.
In Canada for example you can become a police officer with just a highschool diploma... But obviously that never happens.
not the guy you quoted but I know that the FBI really likes accounting majors.
just know that you need to be exemplary to have a chance at joining the FBI. they are selective because they don't hire very often.
>Do you have deployment experience with SOF?
Unfortunately no, I've only worked theater level J2 and regional level G2. I have some training in counter intel analytics and I've worked a few varied types of products.
>I'm at a pmc and we're looking for operations personnel who have or have recently expired ts/sci
I would take you up on it in a heart beat but I don't think I'm what you're looking for if you're looking for people with more tactical experience.
