The Insider Track to the FBI

 The Insider Track to the FBI

PoliceLink

Many aspiring federal agents think they can just take the entrance exam, get through the interviews, and breeze through the polygraph. That mindset couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Like with any professional career, you need to position yourself to ensure you are the best qualified candidate. For college-age individuals, one of the best opportunities you can take advantage of is through a law enforcement internship program.

Many people don’t realize it, but he FBI has a special internship program for college students and others seeking advanced degrees in fields that fill the FBI’s critical skills needs:

• Accounting,

• Computer Science / Information Technology,

• Engineering,

• Foreign Languages,

• Physical Sciences,

• and Law

Internships are available at FBI field offices and resident offices throughout the country, but like special agent positions, only the best and brightest candidates will be accepted. As a result, you should be enrolled in a college or university program in one of the above listed fields of study.

The deadline for the Summer 2009 Internship Program is October 10, 2008. However, don’t delay – make sure you are enrolled in an accredited degree program as early as possible so you can submit your application early to avoid it being overlooked.

If you’re not yet enrolled, use the PoliceLink School Finder at the top of this page to locate a college or university near you that offers these programs.

    good info, law enforcement officers can also apply to thee FBI National Academy and get almost the same training. My own Dept requries that you promise to stay with them for at least three more years to take advantage of the training and benefit the job but its still a good deal
