    Bad news, Leroy.

    You don't get hired by the FBI to be an HRT team member.

    First, your chance of getting hired by the FBI is very slim, less than 1% of all applicants ever get hired.

    Second, if you DID get hired, you'd be a 'rookie' for several years doing crap jobs, like background investigations, secretarial work, etc.

    When, and if, there are openings in HRT, you would compete against other agents for the position.

    But, I have no idea why ANYONE who wants to be in law enforcement would want to work for the FBI... basically glorified pencil pushers.

    I would worry less about experience for a specialty within the FBI, and more about getting hired by the FBI. Getting hired there is a difficult process, more difficult than regular law enforcement. If you want to shoot people, go into and stay in the military.

    SWAT tactical experience vs. a cook/mechanic/admin/truck driver in the military

    Which one do you think the FBI is more likely to go with?

    Just because you're in the military...doesn't mean you will do Rambo stuff.

    they are mind-set diverse. Rescue and raids in SWAT. eliminating aims, searching enemy, recording moves, training friendlies and many various stuff in certain operations. One is LE and one is military, they are spectacular. P.S. particular operations is the words you're making an attempt to employ, particular Forces refers to a unit interior of america military also conventional because the "eco-friendly Berets".
