The Diversity Agent Recruitment Program

The FBI is committed to building a high-performing, diverse and inclusive workforce. The Diversity Agent Recruitment (DAR) Program is one way we are addressing this goal. The DAR program hosts by-invitation events in cities throughout the United States to introduce potential applicants from diverse backgrounds to the Special Agent position.

During a DAR event, applicants will interact with FBI personnel and will learn about being a Special Agent. Applicants who attend a DAR event must meet the same qualifications and follow the same application process as other Special Agent applicants.

As a Special Agent at the FBI, you will be trained to interrogate suspects, investigate foreign spies and infiltrate organized crime. You will track cyber thieves, help decipher malicious computer code and supervise complex terrorism investigations. Above all, you will uphold the rule of law, defend civil rights and civil liberties and protect the American people.

If you have deep personal integrity, a commitment to this country and the ability to connect with the communities we serve, becoming a Special Agent could be the career for you.
