"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

I'd seriously entertain Special Agent but I'm 38 and by agency hiring standards too old to hire in as a newbie.
Even as I'm healthy, in good to excellent physical fitness, and have a clean record amongst other stuff they desire. Not fair. :(
I'm in poor condition and lack LE training. I would make a great under cover agent?
Thanks for the link. Other position I might be considered for.
I went to the ICE website direct and their 'Careers' page states...
Yes Archer it's weird.Criminal Investigators (Special Agent)
At the present time, ICE is not actively recruiting for entry-level Criminal Investigators (Special Agents). Once recruiting commences again, entry-level Criminal Investigators will be recruited through direct contact with Special Agent Recruiters located with each of ICEís Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Offices. These vacancies will not be posted on the Office of Personnel Managementís (OPM) USA Jobs Web site. If you are interested in becoming an ICE Criminal Investigator, contact the nearest Special Agent in Charge Office when we are actively recruiting and ask for the "Special Agent Recruiter." Main phone numbers for each ICE SAC Office are listed under Contact Us. If you meet the basic qualifications and if ICE is actively recruiting Special Agents, the recruiter will advise you of the next steps in the application process.
If I stop in at college bars females there mistake me for being college aged and when (rarely if) carded they at times remark that they guessed me to be ten years younger.
I feel ten years younger. Ehh...Time happens.
See, this is where I wish I was a year older so I can already be out of college, out of the academy, and be applying for exactly these kind of jobs. Yet another exercise in patience, I guess.
count me in. But, being 60 years old, I am afraid they would reject me. Reminds me of my rejection by the Secret Service in 1969 because I wore glasses. In the interview, I pointed to an agent in a picture on the wall and said he wears glasses. Interview over.
If I could redo my time in the military, I would have done more college. I'm 2 years away from a Bachelors though, so after I get that, maybe the FBI will still have some jobs. I'd definitley consider special agent. Till then, I'll just keep going for police officer. Thanks for the link though...it's good to know someone is hiring in a field im interested in.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
I've considered an IT job at ICE. I would get to play with computers and carry a gun, field IT guy that is.
Just call me 00111 (stupid attempt at a binary joke, what is sad is someone will get it).

You know all of these Agencys are missing a good thing. They need to start a 60 to 70 Squad. I bet they would get a lot of applicants. I'm good for over the hill squad.
This makes me wonder, why does the FBI need more agents when we all know the incoming administration is opposed to clandestine activity? Heck, Clinton's Justice department wouldn't allow them to spy on the 9/11 hijackers. Maybe they'll be watching web sites like this to save the country from "troublemakers".
I would not be surprised at all if "someone" was looking or has looked at this site.
First, at 47 I guess I'm too old.
Second, why do they want more agents? Um, call me paranoid, but how much more government employees will they need to keep an eye on all the "undersireables" like CCing peeps?
