FBI informant job postings are popping up across the country, and many agencies are offering them.
While the federal government may be hiring for informants, it’s not necessarily a slam dunk.
The job listings are not the only ways that the FBI is looking for informants.
There are dozens of other jobs posted online as well, from security jobs to security auditing to intelligence jobs.
The FBI is asking for applicants for its Bureau of Intelligence and Research (BIRD) in the Washington, D.C., area, for example, and it’s looking for candidates with experience working on counter-terrorism and cybersecurity.
The Bureau of the Census in Seattle is looking to hire two or three agents for the Census Bureau’s Criminal Justice Division, and the FBI has also hired several agents as part of the FBI’s Domestic Violence Coordinating Unit.
The bureau also has a recruiting drive for law enforcement.
It’s looking to fill an Assistant Director for the National Counterterrorism Center, according to a statement.
The federal government is looking specifically for people with knowledge of computer security and data mining, or anyone with experience in a number of different disciplines, including law enforcement, cybersecurity, and technology.
It would also be a great fit for anyone who has experience working with private sector employees, or who has worked with private companies, the statement says.
