      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 (OGC) and have not heard from us within 45 days of the date of your application, then we do not currently have an available position commensurate with your skills. We regret that we cannot personally respond to and hire all the fine candidates who wish to work for the CIA Office of General Counsel.

      Make a note of the position(s) that interest you, as you can apply for up to four positions in one application.

      DO NOT submit multiple applications; this will only slow the review of your application, and delay processing. Please read the Application Instructions* carefully before you begin the online application process.
