Federal Bureau of Investigation - Chicago, IL4.4

30+ days agoFull-time

From confronting the evolving threats facing our nation, to acting as a role model in the communities you serve, discover how becoming a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) offers a career like no other. In an organization made up of careers like no other, being a Special Agent can be a lifelong career of uncommon days and amazing experiences: interviewing a subject for an ongoing investigation in the morning, testifying in court before lunch, planning an operation with Intelligence Analysts and partners in the afternoon and speaking at a community event in the evening.

The Special Agent position needs people with unique skills, lives, and backgrounds. The one thing every Special Agent shares is belief in the mission of the FBI. They have the drive to help keep our nation safe, become part of something bigger than themselves, and take pride in making a difference in the communities they serve.
