IRS Special Agent Recruiting

Here is a message we received from an IRS special agent:

"The IRS plans to hire for the special agent position in the near future (May/June).  At this time, we don’t know how many people will be hired.  The announcement will close once the target number of applications is reached.  We are waiting for a decision on whether the candidates need to have all the accounting credits completed prior to application or if they can complete the accounting requirements after their application is submitted.  Interested applicants need to establish an account on www.USAJOBS.GOV  to input their resume.  They can also sign up for “Saved Searches" to have jobs that interest them emailed to them when they open. "

I encourage anyone graduating this month and interested in a career with the IRS to apply for this position.
