The FBI Career Guide

  The FBI Career Guide 

 By Joseph W. Koletar, CFE  




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. Joseph 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.

This inside real-world look at the 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 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


The FBI Career Guide also reveals the common mistakes applicants make and how to avoid them. And it gives detailed information on how to excel 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 in the Bureau and if you do how to show it.
