CIA NOW HIRING

Since December 2006, the Central Intelligence Agency has been using Facebook.com, the popular social networking site, to recruit potential employees into its National Clandestine Service. It marks the first time the CIA has ventured into social networking to hire new personnel.

The CIA’s Facebook page (login required) provides an overview of what the NCS is looking for in a recruit, along with a 30-second promotional YouTube video aimed at potential college-aged applicants. U.S. citizens with a GPA above 3.0 can apply.

“It’s an invaluable tool when it comes to peer-to-peer marketing,” says Michele Neff, a CIA spokeswoman.

CIA is an “exempted agency,” meaning it has its own hiring authority and isn’t audited by OPM

Ozer says that there’s no way we can be sure what the CIA is up to online.

“It seems if they would go to the trouble to infiltrate peace groups that they are also online looking at information.”
