Secret Service Special Agents
You can help prepare for a career as a special agent by doing
well in high school. You may receive special consideration by the
Secret Service if you have computer training, which is needed to
investigate computer fraud, or if you can speak a foreign language,
which is useful during investigations and while protecting visiting
heads of state or U.S. officials who are working abroad.
Specialized skills in electronics, forensics, and other
investigative areas are highly regarded. Other important classes
include physical education, English, speech, and
psychology. Aside from school, doing something unique and
positive for your city or neighborhood, or becoming involved in
community organizations can improve your chances of being selected
by the Secret Service.
