Career Chats: Is a "Profiler" a real job? Get the inside scoop from the BAU @ FBI

 Date: Friday, April 1, 2022

Time: 1:45 p.m. to 2:50 p.m.


At one point or another, you have probably seen some sort of crime TV show where there is a profiler helping the cops generate a profile for a suspect--- well, that's not exactly how it works.

Join us to hear from TWO Special Agents within the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI to learn what a career path in this field is REALLY like.



Special Agent (SA) Chad Macones entered on duty with the FBI in 2009, completed 5 months of training at Quantico, VA and then was assigned to the New York Field Office, where he is currently stationed. SA Macones worked on a Mobile Surveillance Team for 5 years and provided support for NY cases and other field offices Bureau-wide. In 2015, SA Macones transferred to the Joint-Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) where he is currently assigned. During that time on the JTTF, SA Macones has worked on threat response, special events, the Tribeca Truck Attack, Chelsea Bombing, Port Authority Bombing, and the Sayoc Bombing. SA Macones has worked investigations related to international terrorism and is currently assigned to a squad working domestic terrorism matters. In 2020, SA Macones was selected as a Coordinator for the New York Field Office Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU). He has participated in a 3 week advanced training at BAU’s Behavioral Threat Assessment Center to study the pathway to violence, indicators of violence, and warning signs for those persons of concern. 

Prior to joining the FBI, SA Macones completed an accelerated counseling program at Fairleigh Dickinson University and earned his Masters of Arts degree in Clinical Counseling and Bachelors in Psychology in 2005. As part of his two Practicums, SA Macones interned at Overlook Hospital’s (Summit, NJ) Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Here, he assisted with new client intakes and assessments, CBT group therapy, anger management groups, and addiction services. SA Macones worked with a variety of mental health providers (i.e., social workers, psychologists, and counselors) while at Overlook Hospital. In 2006, SA Macones began working as a clinician at Bonnie Brae, a Residential Treatment Center (RTC) for male adolescents, where he remained until November 2009. SA Macones was the lead clinician for a cottage of approximately 15 boys. As part of his responsibilities, he conducted weekly therapy sessions for the residents, led emotional management group sessions, conducted family therapy, in-home visits, and was the lead for weekly treatment plans.
