CIA's Office of Global Financial Management (OGFM) seeks motivated undergraduate students, with excellent communication and customer service skills, to work with an accomplished, diverse team, providing a full range of financial support for mission requirements. Finance Resource Officers and Accountants are responsible for the analysis and processing (both manually and electronically) of financial transactions and for ensuring the financial integrity of the Agency's funds. With close supervision, OGFM finance interns learn and use a variety of systems to process a wide range of financial transactions. Finance Resource Officers and Accountants use analytic skills to review reports and monitor general ledger accounts. Officers are challenged to use their talents in the financial arena and are provided the opportunity to develop and strengthen their technical expertise.

The successful applicant will possess strong analytic and problem-solving skills, and must have exceptional customer service skills.

The following items must be attached to your on-line application (PDF format preferred):

  • Your resume.
  • Most recent unofficial academic transcripts.


All applicants must successfully complete a thorough medical and psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background investigation. US 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.

Important Notice: Friends, family, individuals, or organizations may be interested to learn that you are an applicant for or an employee of the CIA.

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.
