An agent with the FBI recently spoke to students in Mrs. McGrath and Mrs. Scott’s business classes who expressed an interest in federal law enforcement. The agent told students that the FBI is also looking for applicants with strong computer skills and accounting backgrounds.
The agent discussed several highly publicized cases on which he worked during his 25+ year tenure with the FBI. The students were given handouts detailing the bureau’s role in high profile cases. Our guest agent was directly involved in the investigation of the Boston Marathon bombing case and well as other highly televised missing persons’ cases. The students enjoyed the visit and were excited to be able to ask the agent questions about cases they learned about and others they remembered hearing in the news media.
