Background:

Service to your country doesn't have to stop when your military tour of duty is complete. The FBI is looking to hire active duty military members who are close to separation or retirement, as well as reservists, National Guard members and veterans. Why join the FBI ranks? Through your current or previous service to our country, you have shown that you share our commitment to keeping our country and our communities safe. You share our core values of leadership, respect, integrity, and fairness. You understand what it means to act with fairness, to be accountable, and to honor diversity. The FBI will give you the chance to take the skills you've developed and the values you hold in a new and challenging direction.
