Tired of sitting all day at Starbucks while sipping free water, surfing the Internet, people watching and faking that you're on vacation from a real job?
A few of you might have a chance of, as Dr. Hannibal Lecter said slowly, "getting all the way to the FBI."
The agency's Los Angeles field office has scheduled a May 13 special agent job recruitment session for interested professionals: lawyers, computer scientists, engineers, detectives, pilots, weapons experts and foreign language specialists.
According to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller, in-shape applicants must be between the ages of 23 and 36; possess a bachelor's degree; and have three years of employment experience.
Don't get too excited dear, job-hunting OC Weekly readers because you may not qualify.
Here are disqualifying factors:
--Lack of U.S. citizenship; --A felony conviction; --Sense of humor; --Default on a federally-backed student loan
(Okay, kidding--partially--about the sense of humor bullet point.)
Yet, these other hurdles might be insurmountable for some:
--No marijuana smoking or non-prescribed drug taking within the last three years; --No "hard drug" consumption in a decade; and --Not a single instance of selling, transporting or manufacturing illegal narcotics.
Depressed? There's still hope. You can score FBI dough tax-free if you use drugs, manufacture drugs or transport drugs. Hell, you can even order murders and certain agents will look the other way if you become a confidential informant working against an agency target.
