原文:

To be clear, FBI agents are hunting down spies, terrorists and serial killers. But those are not the only crimes they pursue. There are some 300 different federal violations the FBI must investigate.

The FBI takes on cyber crime, organized crime, white collar crimes like embezzlement, political corruption and a lot more. To hunt down perpetrators of these kinds of crime, it needs more than door-kicking gunslingers. The Feds need a lot of expert career fields, many of which can be learned in the military.

Veterans with backgrounds in accounting, architecture, contracting, engineering, physical sciences, logistics and more can all find a place as a special agent in the FBI.

中譯:

坦白說,聯邦調查局幹員得緝捕間諜、恐怖分子及連環殺手到案,但他們所要追捕的罪犯遠不僅於此,約有300種不同的聯邦犯行,須由聯邦調查局調查。

該局負責網路犯罪、有組織犯罪、白領犯罪等涉貪污、政治貪腐及更多類型的罪犯。為緝捕這些罪行的罪犯,該局所需的幹員不僅只是會破門攻堅的配槍人員,還需要許多專職領域的人才,其中很多專長可在軍中獲得。

具會計、建築、合約、工程、物理學、後勤及更多職類背景的退伍軍人,都可在聯邦調查局任職特別探員。
