Applicants should have superior interpersonal abilities and be able to effectively communicate, both orally and in writing, in an organized and articulate manner.

Join an elite team that serves a critical mission by keeping our communities and our nation safe. Special Agents are responsible for enforcing over 300 federal statutes and conducting sensitive national security investigations. The FBI hires for a diverse range of skills and experiences.
