The Federal Bureau of Investigation has issued a call for new recruits as it seeks to fill nearly 3,000 “mission-critical” positions with the agency.

The FBI is looking to hire just over 2,100 professional staff employees and 850 special agents in what it calls “one of the largest hiring blitzes in our 100-year history.”

Assistant Director John Raucci of the FBI’s Human Resources Division said the aim is to bring more people on board with skills in critical areas, especially language fluency and computer science.

“But we’re also looking for professionals in a wide variety of fields who have a deep desire to help protect our nation from terrorists, spies, and others who wish us harm,” he said.

For professional staff employees, the agency is looking for recruits skilled in more than a dozen fields, including finance and accounting, security, records management, fingerprint examination, nursing and counseling, electrical engineering, and automotive mechanics.

For the special agent positions, the FBI seeks applicants with foreign language fluency and computer science backgrounds, or those skilled in accounting, intelligence, law, law enforcement, or engineering.

All applicants will undergo polygraphs, drug screenings and background investigations, but the new hires are expected to be on the job by September 30.

Prospective employees can look at available positions and apply by visiting the FBI’s jobs Web site, fbijobs.gov.
