FBI Special Agent

Federal Bureau of Investigation

About the organization

As the United States' premier law enforcement organization, the Federal Bureau of Investigation protects the American people and upholds the nation's Constitution. Special Agents enforce over 300 federal statutes and conduct criminal and national security investigations.


From confronting the evolving threats facing our nation, to acting as a role model in the communities you serve, discover how becoming a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) offers a career like no other. Being a Special Agent can be a lifelong career of uncommon days and amazing experiences: interviewing a subject for an ongoing investigation in the morning, testifying in court before lunch, planning an operation with Intelligence Analysts and partners in the afternoon and speaking at a community event in the evening.

The Special Agent position needs people with unique skills, lives, and backgrounds. The one thing every Special Agent shares is belief in the mission of the FBI. They have the drive to help keep our nation safe, become part of something bigger than themselves, and take pride in making a difference in the communities they serve.

All new FBI Special Agents will earn salaries at the GL-10 [Special Base Rate for LEOs] pay grade. Applicants with no prior government service will earn a salary at the GL-10, step 1 pay level with a 25% Availability Pay bonus (mid-$75,000s), but have the opportunity to promote to the GS-15 level (mid-$150,000s). Applicants with prior government service (including FBI professional staff) may be eligible to receive higher steps that are commensurate with their highest previous pay.

•A completed Bachelor's degree
•At least 2 years (24 months) of full-time work experience.
