    At least let me apply. Or is this some recruit type situation where they meet me in a dark alley and burn off my fingerprints.

        You know years ago I heard a recruitment ad for the CIA on the radio, and that caught me a little off guard, I always kind of assumed the CIA personally reached out to specific candidates and hired through shady back channels and such and didn’t really do open recruitment.

        I guess it makes sense though, for every James Bond type super spy there’s probably a hundred different random office staff, IT guys, clerks, mailroom guys, secretaries, janitors, accountants, etc. who handle boring day-to-day operational stuff and rarely or never get to see any of the crazy spy craft stuff happening.

        And I guess once you land one of those jobs, maybe you can get your foot in the door for eventual promotion to International Man of Mystery.

            I looked into it, and honestly compared to most private sector internships it seemed terrible, one of the alphabet agency internships I looked at was unpaid maybe all of them. And it was the most stereotypical intern stuff. Organizing files and the like.

          At my university my whole class was invited to a seminar about how and why to join the Australian secret intelligence service as an intel officer.

      If you have the background and get the right head hunter, you can get sponsored for your TS/SCI. I used to work for a place…

      I will tell you, however, that working in a SCIF is not as awesome as it looks on TV.
