FBI Oklahoma City Field Office to Host Virtual Diversity Agent Recruitment Event

(OKLAHOMA CITY)—Under a unique hiring initiative, the FBI Oklahoma City Field Office will be hosting a virtual Diversity Agent Recruitment (DAR) event to attract highly qualified candidates for the Special Agent position. This event aims to encourage members of underrepresented communities—especially women and minorities—to consider becoming special agents.

FBI investigations are often extremely challenging, complex, and tend to span the globe. Having agents with different cultural and ethnic backgrounds provides us a better understanding of the communities we serve and improves our ability to successfully investigate while still protecting civil liberties.

The FBI’s DAR event will allow the opportunity to discuss the rewards of pursuing an exciting career as an FBI special agent and the critical role a diverse workforce plays in the success of the FBI. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about and ask questions related to:

  • Life as a new agent (including training at the FBI Academy)
  • Balancing a high-energy job with family
  • Typical day in the life of an FBI special agent (hint: there isn't one!)
  • Working cases that make a difference in your community

The DAR event will be held virtually on March 25, 2021, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Pre-registration is required at: https://apply.fbijobs.gov
