OGC requires the application include a cover letter, resume, law school transcript, legal writing sample, and the names and telephone numbers of three legal references as attachments.

OGC receives hundreds of resumes a month from people desiring to serve their country by participating in our intelligence mission. If you apply for a position with the CIA's Office of General Counsel and have not heard from us within 45 days of the date of your application, then we will not be offering you a position. We regret that we cannot personally respond to and hire all the candidates who wish to work for the CIA Office of General Counsel.

All applicants must successfully complete a thorough medical and psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background investigation. U.S. citizenship is required.

To be considered suitable for Agency employment, applicants must generally not have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the medical and security processing.

Their interest, however, may not be benign or in your best interest. You cannot control whom they would tell. We therefore ask you to exercise discretion and good judgment in disclosing your interest in a position with the Agency. You will receive further guidance on this topic as you proceed through your CIA employment processing.
