Intelligence and Law Enforcement Careers Panel Highlights

The opening event of the Career Center’s Federal Careers included a panel of speakers from ATF, FBI, CIA and ClearedCommunity.com, who shared tips about success in the law enforcement and intelligence fields.

Here is some of the advice:

“Get experience doing interviews. I am shocked at how many candidates are unable to explain why they want to work for my agency.”

“Show your relevant academic work–thesis, research papers–to potential employers. It will demonstrate your writing ability and intellectual strength.”

“When you change jobs, don’t just go for a higher salary…look at the whole picture. Getting paid more money is not worth it if the work is not interesting.”
