原文:

A lot of military personnel make the switch from GI to G-Men, and there's good news: The Federal Bureau of Investigation wants veterans.

Before you apply at the FBI's jobs website, take a look and make sure you meet its requirements for veteran applicants, what documents you need for your veteran's preference and–most important–what automatically disqualifies you.

It's called the Special Agent Selection System (SASS), and there is a very brief, very general overview.

The FBI needs applicants from diverse backgrounds, given the varied nature of the crimes it investigates. It isn't just looking in the backwoods of America for terrorist sleeper cells or investigating murders across state lines.

中譯:

很多軍人從美國大兵轉任為聯邦調查局幹員,而好消息是,聯邦調查局想要進用退伍軍人了。

在上聯邦調查局的求職網站申請之前,請先查看並確認,您個人符合該局為退伍軍人求職申請者所定的標準,準備好個人職類選項所需的文件,而最重要的是,要注意哪些是會讓自己自動喪失資格的項目。

這個求職網站稱之為特種幹員篩選系統,網站上會有極為簡短的綜合概要訊息。

鑑於調查罪犯性質不一,聯邦調查局想要延攬各類不同背景的申請人,因該局所要調查的不僅只是潛伏在美國荒野蓄勢待發的恐怖分子,或是跨州謀殺案等類情而已。

─關鍵軍語─

※GI:

An American soldier.

※G-Men:

An American slang term for agents of the United States Government.

例句:

‘G-Men’is especially used as a term for an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation(FBI).

「G-Men」一詞係特指聯邦調查局幹員的用語。
