Considering a New Career? Think CIA
When a new year begins, many people set fresh career goals and look for new job opportunities. The Agency always is looking for enthusiastic people with integrity, strong interpersonal skills, and excellent written and oral communication abilities.
Agency careers take you from learning about global events from the newspaper to being at the forefront in the nation’s center of intelligence. CIA.gov is a valuable resource for American citizens looking for a career where they can serve their nation and a global mission; current opportunities include:
- Analyst: In an ever changing world, the Directorate of Intelligence is looking for creative, substantive experts who are able to think quickly and deeply. Analysts provide objective analysis on a full range of national security issues for the president, his cabinet and senior policy makers in the US government.
- Clandestine Service Officer: The CIA’s National Clandestine Service (NCS) is the front-line source of clandestine information on critical international issues and often requires officers to live and work overseas. This is more than a job; it’s a way of life. NCS officers have a variety of backgrounds and life experiences, professional and educational histories, language capabilities and other skills that meet mission objectives.
- Business, IT and Security Professional: The Agency employs a diverse array of professionals skilled in everything from finance to logistics, linguists to architecture, law to cartography, and graphic design to web development. These officers serve at home and abroad and play a vital role in national security.
- Recent CIA.gov articles highlighted Agency opportunities for data scientists and engineers as well as an increased focus on foreign language capabilities and training.
The CIA has never offered more exciting and challenging career opportunities for new employees, and when you join the Agency, you accept a role at the cutting edge of momentous events.
