I recently went to the Lugar Job Fair here in Indianapolis and got some information from the FBI table.  They said they were hiring Computer Science Majors so I decided to give it a go.

Has anyone else submitted an application?  How long does it normally take to hear back from them?

Thanks for the help,
-Andy

I filled out an application online last July.  About three weeks later I recieved a testing packet.  I had to withdraw my application and never attended.  A good friend of mine also submitted an application and her testing packet took about as long.  She tested and moved on to the next round about a month later.  She was trying to get into forensics and did not have the minimum amount of experience needed, so they told here to contact them this June.  I have heard that the whole entire process from initial aplication to starting the academy usually takes about nine months.  Good Luck!

i got an old friend from High School that just left her state po-po lab job for the FBI.  i guess the entire process took about 9-12 months to get hired.  FBI does a pretty rigourous background...and besides it federal so any decision has to go through a host of desk jockeys first.  ANY decision takes a long time.

Do you have a link for the online application?

FBI stands for "Friggin' Bunch of Idiots" around my unit...[;D]

Seriously, good luck with your app's
