I do have experience with similar type work. From what I know, it is competitive and there are good reasons why they don’t give you details. Don’t ask, it is honestly none of your business. (I’m not trying to be rude, it is just what you are going to have to get used to)

The big screeners will be the polygraph and being eligible for a clearance. This is a huge headache and you will be interviewed by a special agent (as will his roommates, friends, parents, and neighbors). Because you are not married, you get to be part of the process. If there are any risks that he could be extorted for, he will be out. This could be drugs, close foreign contacts, or heavy partying. It also could be if you are affiliated with any of that. 

For you, you need to make a decision about whether or not you are okay never knowing what he does for a living and, if you do having to lie about it (depending on what he does for the agency)? You don’t get to tell people your Fiance is a special agent, you say he works for DoJ or that he is a X (whatever his degree is in) Will you be okay with the possibility of going into labor, getting into an accident, or finding out amazing news and honestly having no idea where he is? There is a good chance you won’t be able to get in contact with him when you need him. Are you okay with not being able to talk about work at home? Are you okay never being able to take a spur of the moment trip out of the country? If you would like to talk more about what that is really like, feel free to PM me. It is a huge decision to make and has huge impacts on your life, as well as his. I am not trying to scare you, it just is a huge thing to think about and I would be happy to talk to you about my friends’ experiences in similar work.
