    • thanks!

    • Two points: Veterans can get waivers on the max age. And those requirements are for the Special Agent positions. They do not necessarily apply to other positions, so you can be recruited by the FBI without meeting those requirements. Especially in specialty fields where your expertise is needed.

  • I can tell you only that I know it to be very difficult to join the FBI. Few people would be "recruited" because there are so many extremely strong applicants. The only person I know of who was personally recruited was Frank Abignale of "Catch Me If You Can" fame, and that was a very special situation, since he was in prison at the time, etc. Only people with that kind of exceptional knowledge and experience would be recruited.

    I personally know of great, talented, experienced and admired cops who very much wanted to start a career in the FBI and who were not accepted. It is a dream job for many people in US law enforcement.

  • Was going to google but looks like I was beaten to it - I don't where I got the idea from but I kinda thought that it was done internally recruiting from police forces and police academies.
