Do you have what it takes to be a federal agent? The FBI says it's accepting applications from "talented and motivated individuals" who want to serve their country and communities.
"Special agents bring with them a variety of experience and skills, from computer science and engineering to law and accounting," the FBI advertisement says.
They're also a select bunch.
During fiscal 2014, the bureau said, it received more than 20,000 applications for approximately 700 special agent vacancies.
Applicants must successfully complete the Special Agent Selection System (SASS), described as a "mentally and physically challenging process designed to identify the most capable candidates."
It includes an online application to screen for eligibility and willingness, followed by a number of exams, interviews, and background evaluations.
Applicants are rated on "individual competitiveness and the professional needs of the FBI," the bureau says.
The process can take six months to a year.
