Mollie Halpern: Hundreds of students from colleges and universities across the country spent part of the summer exploring career opportunities within the FBI. Associate Deputy Director Kevin Perkins…
Kevin L. Perkins: The FBI is a calling. It's a lifestyle. And it is a family.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is FBI, This Week. Casey Fitzpatrick is a member of the FBI internship class of 2013.
Casey Fitzpatrick: I’ve learned more about career fields I never even knew were possible or something that I had never considered before. I feel lucky and I’ve enjoyed it.
Halpern: The interns received their certificates after spending 10 weeks working side-by-side FBI employees in select field offices as well as FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Alex Doak hopes to one day become an FBI special agent.
Alex Doak: I’ve always had a passion for helping people and I knew the FBI helped solve crimes and terrorism, so I figure that's where I’d be able to do the most good in this world.
Halpern: Nine thousand or so candidates applied to the internship program, but only about 400 students were selected. Interns must have a grade point average of 3.0 or above and must pass the same suitability standards as FBI employees. To learn more about the program, visitwww.fbijobs.gov.
