    • FBI CAMPAIGN BRIEFExecutive SummaryGriffin Consulting, a marketing agency consisting of 21students, worked in coordination withEdVenture Partners to create and implement an integrative marketing campaign for the FederalBureau of Investigation (FBI). The objectives of this campaign were to increase awareness of theFBI’s career opportunities as well as positively market the FBI as an employer to the diversestudent body of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).The approach to this campaign was to stimulate interest about the FBI through the use of creativeand innovative advertisements, generate exposure through multiple media outlets, and implementpromotional events designed to attract the desired target market. The main theme that waschosen for this campaign was “Secure Your Future.” This theme was designed to encouragestudents to take an interest in the various opportunities offered by the FBI, and to consider theFBI as a potential path to success.The advertising campaign began with print advertisements strategically posted in various high-traffic areas throughout campus. Flyers, banners, internet postings, television and radio spotswere used to disseminate information about the FBI and generate buzz about the campaign’smain event, “Follow Your Intuition.” This event was the culmination of the entire campaign,attracting over 500 people.In order to ensure the success of this campaign, the 21 members of Griffin Consulting weredivided into six departments, each assigned individual tasks. The Research Departmentconducted pre-campaign surveys in order to better understand the target market and post surveysto evaluate the overall success of the campaign. The Advertising Department designed allcreative marketing materials used throughout the campaign. Campaign Strategy was responsiblefor the logistics of the entire campaign including the main event. Published Reports createdtemplates for all booklets and slideshows. The Public Relations Department focus was oncreating and distributing media kits and coordinating with representatives of local media outletsto generate exposure and subsequently attendance at our event. The Finance Department handledall budgeting for the campaign, ensuring a maximum return on investment (ROI) of 2,236%.Overall, this campaign was an astounding success with 350 CRF submitted. Key benchmarkswere established at the beginning and reinforced throughout the campaign. The numbers ofimpressions generated throughout the campaign were nearly 1,000,000 which included anappearance on NBC Morning News Show, WGN Radio, and The Loop 97.9. TheAdvertising Department created 20 print advertisements, which were approved by the client.Our post campaign research demonstrated an over 50% increase in career consideration of theFBI. Multiple media vehicles were utilized to generate buzz and create awareness of the agencyand the opportunities within the FBI. Griffin Consulting is confident that the material containedwithin the booklet will be helpful to the FBI for years to come. SECURE YOUR FUTURE 5

    • FBI CAMPAIGN BRIEFResearchObjectivesThe objectives for the Research Department were to analyze the target market, and determinetheir awareness of the opportunities that the FBI offers by conducting primary research throughthe utilization of pre and post surveys. The research section also identified: key features andbenefits sought by the target market, demographic profiles, and overall perceptions of the FBI.The research results were analyzed and interpreted to assist in the design of a marketingcampaign that satisfied the objectives set forth by the FBI. The Griffin Consulting ResearchDepartment utilized the student populations at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) inorder to create a campaign which best exemplified our research data.Target MarketThe target market is composed of two integral sections: 1. Primary focus on diverse target market among the UIC Campus including: African- American, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Pacific Islander, and women and/or on students with critical language skills. 2. Secondary focus on UIC alumni and working professionals.Agents must be between the ages of 23 and 36 upon appointment.In addition to the preceding criteria, Special Agent critical skill areas include: experience or adegree in Accounting/Finance, Computer Science/Information Technology,Engineering/Architecture, Foreign Language Proficiency, Intelligence Experience (InternationalStudies, International Finance, and Area Studies), Law Experience, Law Enforcement orInvestigative Experience, Military Experience, and Physical Sciences (Biology, Chemistry,Math, Nursing).The FBI is also reaching out to students who might be interested in working in Professional Staffpositions or being an FBI Honors Intern.Critical languages needed for the Special Agent position are: Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Hebrew,Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Pashtu, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Urdu, and Vietnamese. A list oflanguages for Professional Staff positions can be found at www.fbijobs.gov. SECURE YOUR FUTURE 7
    • FBI CAMPAIGN BRIEFResearchStrategyThe majority of all participants were Junior/Senior undergraduates and graduate studentsbetween the ages of 21-24. In order to assure that the data was consistent and precise, the preand post-surveys were distributed to the same classes. The classes that were selected included: • Business • Political Science • Foreign Language • Information Technology • Criminal Justice • Liberal Arts & SciencesPre-selected classrooms and lecture centers were chosen in the University of Illinois at Chicagofor the survey sample. By utilizing these areas for the research, we were able to gather a largeamount of surveys that helped us effectively and efficiently gather relevant market data. Afterthe survey results were analyzed, all the information was distributed to all the differentdepartments of Griffin Consulting in order to use these findings as the basis to a successfulcampaign.Pre-Campaign FindingsAfter distributing, tabulating and analyzing over 400 surveys of which 330 were useful, the FBIResearch Team was able to discuss valuable information derived from the vast amount ofresponses. As discussed in our objectives, our purpose was to focus on respondents of diversebackgrounds aged 23-36 at the UIC East Campus. The surveys were distributed only in pre-selected classrooms, which represented the target market. We were able to verify that 55% ofour respondents were of an ethic background being sought from the FBI. Of these 182respondents, 17% were Hispanic, 22% were Asian, 8% were African-American, 6% wereclassified as other, and 2% were Pacific Islander. The respondents were mainly between theages 17-24 or 86.6% of the survey participants, which represents the younger portion of thetarget market’s age (23 to 24). Of the 13.4%, which were 25 and older, they account for such asmall percentage of the sample size since the number of graduate level classes and alumnipresence on campus is small. In regards to gender, and 56% of the respondents were female.The survey consisted of twenty-two questions, nine of which are FBI-related or FBI-awarenessquestions, five are demographic questions, four of which are related to education, three of whichare related to lifestyles, and one question focused on employment status. In order to ensurereliability and validity within our research, the same targeted samples were utilized for both thepre and post surveys. SECURE YOUR FUTURE 8
