Re: Federal Law Enforcement

Chain is not a fed. And I applied to the FBI before I was even a member. So bite me.

You say that like everybody does. Less than 1% of applicants are hired. I haven't been officially rejected yet. Passed Phase 1 and no invitation to Phase 2. I don't expect it either. The more I hear the more I think other agencies are better to work for anyway (my justification).

Re: Federal Law Enforcement

Heavy-Dee saw Men in Black and just had to get in on the action. He just wants to work with Will Smith...

Just kidding man. Good luck with the application.

Re: Federal Law Enforcement

1811 is a job code I think. Used to describe 'Special Agent' types. An FBI Special Agent is considered an '1811', w/ a pay grage of GS-10 through 15. Most agencies have 1811's like the Criminal Investigator for the USPS. Secret Service, Diplomatic Security Service, IRS all have 1811 type employees, and they are usually investigator's that carry a weapon, caseload, et al.

Re: Federal Law Enforcement

Best advice I can give you although Im just starting a career as a Police officer is to get some experiance as LEO or get a masters degree. I know for a fact Secret Service wont take you unless you have a masters already. Federal Jobs are tough to get.

Re: Federal Law Enforcement

A foot-in-the-door type of job would be as a LEO for one of the Federal Reserve banks. Not a very exciting job as those banks only get robbed in movies but like I said...it's a foot in the door.

US Marshalls or DSS would be the coolest, IMO. ATF and Secret Service are close seconds....and the Secret Service is currently hiring.

Re: Federal Law Enforcement

Secret Service is actively hiring and finding folks to for certain positions. You'd be suprised at the field of responsibility they engage these days.

HD - what particular aspect of the (assumedly field agent) FBI path interests you the most? You will find some other agencies 'easier' to make arrangements with right now and some that are downright begging for people and having jobfairs.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
