Experience, leadership, integrity, teamwork, and dedication are all traits military personnel already possess. The FBI recognizes the values and service of these unique men and women and offers many opportunities for them to continue their careers and serve the nation.
Servicemen and women who join the FBI have the opportunity to work in one of the FBI’s many disciplines, from becoming a Special Agent to working in professional capacities that meet their interests and experiences. The FBI strongly encourages military and veteran candidates to apply to any of the positions that interest them. To further explore our many career paths, please visit our Career Paths section.
Veterans who apply are also eligible for Veterans’ Preference. To learn more about Veterans’ Preference, click here.
More information on benefits for veterans and servicemen and women is available on our Benefits page, as well as on FedsHireVets.gov.
The FBI also has a specific program for Wounded Warriors, also known as Operation War Fighter Check below for more information.
Wounded Warrior Program with the FBI
Established in 2012, our Wounded Warriors Internship Program enables the FBI to support veterans during their medical recovery, and provide career development opportunities for active duty service members recovering from a medical procedure. The WWIP offers applicants a formal means of transitioning back to the military or civilian workforce through rewarding assignments and career-driven experiences in which veterans can:
Build or update their resume
Explore career paths and employment interests
Develop valuable job skills
Gain federal government work experience prior to their transition back into the civilian workforce
FBI hiring managers view the WWIP as a working interview opportunity to evaluate candidates for possible permanent employment. Internship opportunities may be available at FBI Headquarters and field offices.
