Overview

"In the three years following the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Federal Bureau of Investigation hired 2,200 new Special Agents.

But that was out of more than 150,000 applicants, and you can be sure the successful candidates had not only relevant backgrounds, but also determination and a genuine desire to embark on one of the most coveted, rewarding, and challenging careers in the world.

The FBI Career Guide spells out exactly what the Bureau is looking for in Special Agent candidates, and how to maximize your chances of being selected from the huge applicant pool.

Joe Koletar, whose own blue-ribbon career at the Bureau is second to none, shows how to get the job--and how to thrive once you've got it. His inside look at the real FBI reveals:

* Smart educational and career decisions to improve your odds of being hired

* How to meet and network with current FBI agents

* What Special Agents do, day-to-day, in different roles and environments

* How undercover investigations, SWAT team operations, and specialty assignments work

* What agents earn, and what benefits they receive

* The prospects for advancement, and some typical (and not so typical) career paths

* How the job may affect your personal and family life

And much more

The FBI Career Guide also reveals the common mistakes applicants make, and shows how to avoid them. And it gives you detailed information on excelling in the Agent Training Program.

Finally, the book offers profiles of real agents who have gone on to successful post-FBI careers, and will help you lay the groundwork for a rewarding life after the Bureau. Above all, The FBI Career Guide will help you find out if you've got what it takes to succeed -- and if you do, how to show it."
