FBI tries to retool for post-9/11 world
MOBILE, Ala. — The prototypical FBI agent in the J. Edgar Hoover days was a lawyer or accountant. Today’s ideal candidate is more likely to be a computer whiz who is fluent in a second language.
Finding new agents with that kind of background can be challenging, especially since they must also pass a background check, lie detector test and physical fitness trial as well as survive a written test, an oral interview and 18 weeks of training at Quantico, Va.
