PENDLETON – The Federal Bureau of Investigation is sending officials to Pendleton to discuss a career with the federal agency at Blue Mountain Community College. Kaley Cope, the director of marketing and communications for BMCC, said there are many possible jobs within the agency.

“They have everything from your very mysterious FBI investigators to tire technicians, researchers, and data analysts,” Cope said.

In addition to that special agent job, the FBI is also seeking people with expertise that can be used in forensic science, nursing, computer technology, cyber security, electronic surveillance, biometrics, encryption, energy, and other areas.

Skilled trade professionals are also valued by the agency. There are job possibilities for people who have expertise in automotive, machine, and electrical repair as well as carpentry and locks. The job fair is in Room 100 of Morrow Hall Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
