As the FBI strives to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion, the FBI is actively seeking qualified candidates with different backgrounds and experiences to connect with the communities we serve. To bridge the ethnic, racial, and gender gaps between the FBI and the community, the FBI implemented a national Diversity Agent Recruitment (DAR) initiative.

The DAR recruiting information session is a two-hour long event designed to provide information about the multitude of career opportunities for prospective special agents with diverse backgrounds and expertise, including accounting, IT, foreign languages, education, communications, military, management, engineering, cyber, and legal, to name a few.

There is a misconception that the FBI only hires people with law enforcement experience or criminal justice education. That is simply not true. FBI special agents have a range of backgrounds, education, and skill sets that collectively allow the Bureau to stay ahead of threats. Special agents have the drive and leadership skills to take on new challenges and protect their communities.

It takes people from all industries and cultures to accomplish the FBI mission of protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution of the United States. The Diversity Recruiting information session will allow the FBI to share more about their work, provide detailed information about the application process, and answer any questions prospective candidates may have. Additionally, attendees will be able to meet one-on-one with special agents, physical fitness advisors, and the applicant coordinator.

Anyone interested in attending the DAR information session should register as soon as possible to secure a spot. Qualified candidates will receive further instructions prior to the event. For those requiring accommodations regarding the DAR event, e-mail jahaymond@FBI.GOV.

Please note that the DAR event is only an information session. Candidates who wish to apply directly for a Special Agent position can do so through the same website (FBIJOBS.GOV) by creating a profile, submitting their resume, and completing an application for a special agent position listing.

The FBI Office of Diversity and Inclusion was created in 2013. In 2015, "Building a High-Performing, Diverse and Inclusive Workforce" was established as a Director’s Priority Initiative (DPI), leading to the implementation of various Diversity and Inclusion programs across the country.
