FBI seeking more women, minority agents
While there is a lot of attention being paid to jobs falling in the categories of goods-producing or service-providing, there are also jobs to be found in the public service sector. Government jobs can run the gamut from administrative positions to congressional aids.
Among these jobs is law enforcement, which spans a wide range in itself; from municipal police departments all the way up to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (more common lyknownby its initials, the FBI).
The FBI dates back to 1908 – organized originally under the name “Bureau of Investigation” — when it began with a total of 34 agents. Today the operations of the FBI run the gamut of specific crimes in local U.S. cities to counterterrorism operations that span the globe. The FBI now employs more than 35,000 people.
The agency is always hiring, but recently the FBI announced it is actively seeking more female agents and people of color. The process has educational prerequisites, physical ability requirements and involves a thorough background check.
The agency has had female special agents since 1922,
