Career Path to the FBI
Hello, I was trying to figure out the best way to get on a career path to the FBI, Im majoring in Information Technology with a focus in cyber security, and I love to travel as well. So was just wanting some advice on that
I'd check with your local law enforcement agency and see if you can get internships early with them. Most agencies of 100 officers or more will have a specialized investigator that looks into cyber crime, and some agencies even have their own dedicated cybercrime unit. This would be an excellent way to get some idea of what the job would look like without traveling to FBI headquarters.
You can also contact your FBI field office and ask info about their regional Electronic Crime Task Force (ECTF) event. Usually they have a quarterly meet. While most were virtual meetings due to the pandemic, the in-person meets are slowly coming back. That's a great opportunity to meet the agents in person and ask questions.
Some high schools offer computer programming languages, if you do have it, you may get lucky to get an internship earlier than your junior year of the college.
