The CIA Is Recruiting For Open Positions

Look Who's Hiring: The CIA

Government jobs are proven to be the most recession-proof, and while there are stimulus jobs to be filled, the CIA is doing some recruiting of its own. The ramped-up outreach has involved direct emails and campaigns targeting college students, former Wall Street workers, and anyone with foreign language skills, especially Middle Eastern languages. While you might align the CIA with clandestine activities, as an employee you're not destined to be dressing in disguise.

There are currently positions in 90 different occupations open, like psychologist and software engineer. CIA spokeswoman Marie Harf explains, "We’re looking for everything from analysts and operations officers to linguists, engineers, and accountants." If you enter the agency in a role that doesn't require the highest-level of secrecy, that being undercover, you'll have an easier time balancing work and family than your more covert co-workers.

Would you consider working for the CIA?
