Geeks Wanted at the FBI

Gas prices are going up again, not one single Gordon Gekko-lyte has been held accountable for the financial meltdown of recent years, and most of us are just now sobering up from a tax filing hangover. So if you’re looking for another reason to complain about the government, here it is: Reports are that 13 out of 36 surveyed FBI agents lack the skills to deal with cyber crime.

However, it’s Friday afternoon and the sun is — finally — shining in much of our soggy country, so we’re going to focus on the positive in this report.

Skip over the doom-and-gloom in the article and look at the bottom where Jason Mick writes, “Since 2009 the FBI has been trying to hire 3,000 new agents, with a heavy emphasis on individuals with IT experience.”

So if you’re a nerd and you’ve ever wanted to live out your War Games or Chuck fantasies, then Uncle Sam wants you!
