Applicants must be US citizens between the ages of 23 and 36 and clearly looking for a “career like no other”, as noted on the FBI Jobs recruitment website. Special Agents are identified as spearheading the effort to stay one step ahead of potential threats through combined use of skill, talent and dedication to team work.

Qualified candidates of varying ethnic and racial backgrounds are invited to apply online for the Houston FBI recruiting event which will be focusing on effective representation in the communities they serve. An accelerated testing and selection process will be in place for the tracking of all DAR applicants, and those who qualify will be invited to attend the Houston-specific recruitment directly by the FBI.

The opportunity to become a FBI Special Agent, although clearly having some employment perks, also has some moral hurdles to clear. You can bet there’s a background check, interviews with current and former coworkers, friends, family and neighbors – because investigation is what they do! Further requirements identified through the official FBI website are comprised of strict adherence to all policies, including those for drugs, not to mention a credit check, polygraph, and criminal record check. If you feel your skills for fact-finding are stronger than your ex or your worried mom, you could have a solid future as a FBI Special Agent.
