FBI Partners with Louisiana Workforce Commission
Special Agent in Charge Douglas A. Williams, Jr. announced a new partnership with the Louisiana Workforce Commission to help the FBI fill key positions needed to fulfill the mission of protecting the people of the United States. “Special Agents are of course what people think of first when they think of the FBI,” said Williams. “We are always looking for exceptional individuals to fill that role. However, two-thirds of personnel at the Bureau are professional, support staff and we can think of no better partner than the Louisiana Workforce Commission to help us find great new employees.”
The year-long campaign is comprised of four recruiting events that will be held in key locations across Louisiana. The first is scheduled for Tuesday, March 14th in New Orleans between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. People who wish to attend will need to complete a pre-registration form by going to https://forms.gle/6dCvWWrdQYbapgdM7 or by going to the Louisiana Workforce Commission website (www.laworks.net) and clicking on Job Fairs & Events Details, and clicking on the March 14th FBI event. Candidates must be a U.S. Citizen, be 23-36 years of age (if applying to be an agent), and have a valid driver’s license. Agent applicants must also have a bachelor’s degree or higher from an accredited college or university in the United States, have at least two years of full-time professional work experience, meet physical requirements, and be able to obtain a security clearance.
“We strongly encourage anyone who might be interested in an FBI career to fill out the form,” said Supervisory Administrative Specialist Darren Rodgers. “Right now, we have several openings for Operational Support Technicians. These positions are entry-level and do not require a college degree, but these individuals work with Special Agents and Administrative personnel every day. We also stress that the age limitations apply to Special Agents only and we encourage seasoned professionals to consider what the Bureau has to offer,” Rodgers added. Other openings include auto mechanics and IT professionals.
Applicants will be contacted and given the address for the New Orleans event, 48-hours before it begins. It is important that they bring an updated resume, a copy of their final college transcript, and Veterans’ information, if applicable (DD-214, VA Letter, etc.). The Louisiana Workforce Commission will have its Mobile Workforce center on-site to help interested parties complete online applications and upload important documents. Future events will be held in Baton Rouge, Alexandria, and the Shreveport/Bossier City area.
