What do I have to do to become a FBI Agent?

Asked New Orleans, Louisiana

I want to become an FBI Agent to investigate and solve the problems/crimes that are going on in the community. I know there are 2-4 year degrees for criminal justice and additional years to get into this career. I've heard things like you have to become a police officer and then be promoted into becoming an FBI Agent and I also heard that if you join the military after you've come out you are automatically become an FBI Agent. I wonder is these statements true. I just want to know what is the best way to really becoming an FBI Agent. #criminal-justice #fbi-agent #detective

Diamond, the military does not automatically qualify you to become an agent. And you do not have to be a police officer first. Most agents were not police officers. Here are some suggestions, if you want to become an agent: Bank Manager, CPA, Computer Forensics and Lawyer. Those are some suggestions. Go to their website http://fbi.gov/ and click on jobs. They pretty much spell it out for you, on what you need to do. I never started out wanting to do what I do now, but it was my previous career experience, that helped make this present one possible.
