Chris Cosgriff / PoliceLink

The Central Intelligence Agency is the most widely American intelligence service. Its mission is to provide national security intelligence to senior US policymakers.

To accomplish its mission, the CIA engages in research, development, and deployment of high-level technology for intelligence purposes. As a separate agency, the CIA serves as an independent source of analysis on sensitive matters and also works closely with the other organizations in the Intelligence Community to ensure that the intelligence consumer—whether Washington policymaker or battlefield commander—receives the best intelligence possible.

The CIA fills its ranks from the best and brightest candidates available. Jobs are broken down into several categories:

Analytical Positions – skilled subject-matter experts who study and evaluate information from many sources

Scientists, Engineers & Technology – a unique opportunity for scientific and engineering experts to look beyond a commercial, product-driven mindset to goal-oriented, highly focused work

    All I have to say about the Clandestine Service, is that I sent my application 4 times, to 4 different addresses found on the website, and my packet came back as "undeliverable/no such address" all 4 times. So, either they can't decide what their address is, or they are very clandestine!

I recall much from three years old...why cause I had good educated people...I am a quandry to most.....I like directness!!!!!!!!!! It takes intuitiveness, and more to see the way through the back door Robo!

    Apache, don't worry, you would never get through the psycho test. Folks, understand that the background check is very extensive and depending on what material you will be exposed to can get VERY personal. These folks knew things I did as a kid that I don't even remember! I got so many calls in 1968 when they were doing my background check that everyone thought for sure I was in the Federal Pen and maybe even murdered Cock Robin for crying out loud!
