The FBI is looking to hire some special agents, looking for applicants with a variety of backgrounds

To better diversify the FBI, a recruitment event will be held June 12, FBI spokesman Huston Pullen said.

FBI Special Agents and support staff will be on hand to discuss the many career paths available.

Pullen said threats in our nation have become increasingly complex and global.

To attend, candidates interested in the special agent position must apply online at www.FBIJobs.gov then click “Apply to Jobs,” search “DAR,” and click on “DAR Omaha Talent Network,” then read the job summary instructions and click “START.”

Individuals with a wide variety of backgrounds and knowledge of cultures and languages helps understand and engage the public, and also enables the FBI to effectively investigate national security and criminal threats, while preserving civil liberties, Pullen said.

The recruiting campaign is open to citizens of the United States of all backgrounds.

“Our organization, and its workforce, need to reflect the communities which we serve,” said Randall Thysse, the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Omaha. “Diversity is key to our success as we continue to attract the talent we need as an organization to fulfill the mission of the FBI.”
