FBI Information Technology Jobs Now Abound for the Tech-Savvy

May 1, 2015 Information Technology 0 Comments

FBI information technology jobs opening up around the country are presenting an opportunity to IT professionals and recent graduates.

Students who recently graduated with degrees in information technology often begin their job search in the private sector, researching vacancies in both small startups and large tech companies. But nonprofit and public-sector organizations are also looking to hire those experienced in IT. The latest just so happens to be the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

FBI Information Technology Jobs Now Abound for the Tech-SavvyA New Wave of Recruits

On the hunt for some of the best young tech talent, the Bureau seeks those who can assist with everything from cybersecurity to finding the criminals who commit Internet- and other computer-based crimes every day. In January, the FBI reported it would begin a nationwide recruitment effort for computer scientists, forensic examiners, network technicians, security analysts and other IT professionals for a new wave of FBI information technology jobs.

Cybersecurity is a major focus of today's economy, as American government departments and U.S.-based corporations have suffered Web breaches of late stemming from countries like Russia, China and even North Korea. This is part of the reason the FBI is ramping up its efforts to hire IT professionals with the skills and experience to quell the types of external attacks now threatening the federal government and other major databases in the private sector.


The Bureau is limiting access to FBI information technology jobs to United States citizens only who have experience in a tech-specific field. And while it has always been looking for new, tech-savvy recruits, this latest outreach is explicit in its aim to find students and individuals with a passionate IT background that will be useful in preventing and securing domestic information both from threats abroad as well as those here at home.

Those with an IT degree from an accredited university will likely hold an advantage over those without, but the FBI seeks professionals who carry eclectic knowledge and a robust skill set in IT and security systems. Those with the training and experience in information technology, IT forensic science, networking and network administration will likely see new opportunities emerging from government agencies like the FBI, CIA, State Department, NSA and the Pentagon.
