FBI Springfield Hosts Job Fair

SPRINGFIELD—FBI Springfield will host a job fair on May 15, 2024, from 2:30-6:30 p.m. at the field office, 900 East Linton Avenue, in Springfield, IL. Pre-registration is required.

The mission of the FBI is to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States. To meet that mission, the FBI looks for highly qualified candidates who possess a broad range of education, experience, and skills. While the public is most familiar with the position of special agent, the Bureau has an extensive list of other career opportunities to consider:

  • STEM—computer scientist, information technology, forensic biologist, cryptanalyst
  • Business/Administration – human resources, program and records management, compliance, information management
  • Arts/Communications – public affairs, community outreach, forensic anthropology, evidence photography, graphic design
  • Finance/Accounting – financial operations, forensic accounting, budget analysis, forensic financial research
  • Other career paths—legal, medical and counseling, police and security, surveillance, foreign language, victim services

“Many threats the FBI works to mitigate result in complex investigations requiring a workforce possessing a variety of experience and skill sets,” said FBI Springfield Special Agent in Charge David Nanz. “Additionally, diversity is an FBI core value and we are committed to an inclusive environment where all people, perspectives, and experiences are valued. Having individuals with a wide variety of backgrounds and knowledge of cultures and languages helps the FBI better understand our increasingly complex and global threat environment so we can conduct more effective investigations into national security and criminal threats. It also helps us engage more effectively with the diverse public we serve.”

Pre-registration is required and must be completed online by May 1, 2024. Once submitted, an FBI representative will contact you with further details regarding admittance to the event.
