Once you've completed your degree (preferably in psychology, biology, human behavior or criminal justice field) you would need to get your foot in the door at an agency that offers this position. You would not be hired right out of college because a profiler needs extensive experience in their field and then generally transitions into the position of a profiler after years of training and related field work. Don't get discouraged though, it is possible. You just need to have realistic expectations and know that it isn't a position that one attains at a young age or right after college. Good luck
