FBI highlights technology recruitment

The FBI today unveiled a campaign to hire a large number of IT professionals to operate and maintain the bureau's global systems.

'Joining the FBI technology team will be an exciting and rewarding career,' said FBI director Robert S. Mueller III in a statement. 'The FBI is dedicated to developing and implementing state-of-the-art IT systems to support our agents and analysts in the field. These IT positions are critical in support of this FBI's mission to protect the United States against terrorism, foreign intelligence, criminal enterprises and cyberattacks.'

According to an FBI statement, the bureau is recruiting computer scientists, engineers, IT specialists and project managers at salaries ranging from $35,452 to $135,136, with potential recruitment bonuses. The FBI has adopted special procedures to hire staff quickly, with interviews beginning in January.
