As the FBI seeks to hire hundreds of new special agents, they will be looking for women to join the agency.

About 20% of the bureau’s special agents are women, according to [2] Fox 29.

“I worked the riots, Rodney King. I worked every, anything imaginable,” said Special Agent Tanya Coleman.  “I was a single mom when I decided to join the FBI.”

Women are playing a bigger role in the bureau than ever – and the gender diversity is paying off, the FBI said.

“Whether you were a school teacher or whether you worked at a company for years, or you were in the military or law enforcement, we need to have a broad spectrum of that so our agents can do any job we assign them to,” said Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs.

FBI agents must be at least 23 years old, have a four-year degree and have at least three years of professional working experience.
