Drug Enforcement Administration Continues to Recruit Accounting and Finance Experts

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is still seeking individuals with accounting or finance degrees, or related experience to become DEA Special Agents. Drug trafficking in America has an estimated value of $65 billion of which DEA seized more than $1.5 billion in 2005. While the seizure of $1.5 billion in assets is a substantial accomplishment, and a sizeable increase from the previous year, DEA continues to seek out individuals with accounting and finance expertise to attack the lifeblood of drug trafficking organizations - the money.

DEA Special Agents have the ability to make an impact on society by removing dangerous criminals from the streets of America and the world. DEA Special Agents with financial experience will help dismantle complex, international drug trafficking organizations, some of which may have terrorist ties. DEA Special Agents also help determine the source of and seize illegal narcotics assets, often in the multimillion dollar amounts.

DEA is looking for qualified men and women from diverse backgrounds to join their ranks. Competitive candidates should have a four-year finance or accounting degree – or any four- year degree with finance or accounting experience, be in excellent health and physical condition, and between the ages of 21 and 36.

Interested individuals in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska, can call Special Agent/Recruiter Jeffrey Eig at 206-553-1411.
