    Well I certainly hope they see my qualifications in a good light. I've done everything I can think of to make myself hirable. Funny enough learning Arabic wasn't that hard for me although like I said I lived there and used it daily so that helped a lot. Nothing wrong with the FDNY but hopefully one or the other will come calling you.

Right now Im finishing up my thesis for my Masters in Middle Eastern and Islamic studies with Language (its a mouth full I know). For the past 4 years I have traveled all over the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe for my studies so Im hoping this will help. No my masters wasn't 4 years it was two but I spent the other time learning Arabic, for the negative folks on here . I hope you hear good news BrooklynBorn, also the CBPO is hiring and they pause your age if you ever want to transition over.
    Thanks bro, obviously after hearing your qualifications, I realize that I stand even less than a zero chance lol.
    Was just curious, didn't know much about the competition or job in general. I was just researching it.

    Honesty learning Arabic is as impressive as it gets.

    CBPO is what I was originally researching.
    I will probably be in either the FDNY academy or DOC academy this summer. Counting my lucky stars for FDNY but this is the last class after taking the test 5 years ago.

As mentioned above, your best bet is to get in with a federal agency you know will pick you up before the age of 37. If you are serious about the FBI, you will do just that. That stops the clock and gives you the experience the bureau is looking for.
    Thanks bro I was actually looking into customs and border patrol and that's why I ended up asking the FBI question after browsing federal jobs.

    Sorry if I am being repetitive but wanted to thank you for the positive response.

    As you said, you have been trying to get competitive jobs for years with no results. Instead of applying to 100 agencies and hoping for the best, why not spend your time making yourself a more appealing candidate?
    Thanks for the positive response. I was referring to FDNY and PAPD as the competitive jobs. I was just exploring FBI while I was originally looking into customs, wasn't under the impression I was going to get it, but I would be silly not to inquire as to the requirements and apply to as many as possible. I've taken about 4 other tests in the past that are panning out currently. Should be in an academy this summer with my back up department.

    Being that he is from NYC I would suggest NYPD. You just have to take the test before your 35 I believe. They will hire someone right out of their parents basement, with no drivers license, life experience, etc. Most of them I stop honestly don't even speak English....so ya...

It's not an insurmountable obstacle, but one that is going to take some serious explaining to move beyond. Add that most of his competition has been working those 16 years in law enforcement, getting advanced degrees, and fighting in a couple of wars; It is unlikely that waking up at 34 and thinking, it would be cool to be a cop (or an Special agent), is going to be much of a qualification. Call me a glass is half empty kind of guy if you like, but I am just a realist.

    And...he has been trolling several other threads asking similar questions.

    The FBI, and most 1811 positions, would not hire you based off that background. Not to mention most of the age cutoffs for federal agencies is 37. Your best bet is to firstly get a fulltime job, and work on applying to a local PD. Make yourself a better candidate.

    Anyway I was curious about FBI special agent. It says you need three years full time work experience and although I am 34, I technically haven't had a full time job. Ive had a security job at Madison Square Garden for about 8 years after I graduated with a management degree and the economy crashed. I work there several days a week (2-6) with some doubles, but I don't have set schedule and sometimes only work 1-2 days a week, thats a union job and the union has other venues that I also work for. I do get benefits which I see is one of the requirements of the FBI's idea of what a full time job is. I have worked seasonally for my family's accounting business but that doesn't count. So does anyone know if I should try to apply anyway? Anyway around it, Can i take another deferral job and then transfer before the age cut off of 37? thanks

    I have been working on getting very competitive civil service jobs for several years but none of them are panning out.
    34 years old and youve never had a full time job?
