    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Homeland Security (Sacramento, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I applied and got pretty far in the application process. Unfortunately I was disqualified because of my eyesight. I was pretty crushed and heartbroken because my eyesight was good enough for me to serve in a special ops unit but for 3 years and qualify expert on every weapon system I could get my hands on. But to be a BPA I was unqualified. Sad face.
