Two New Job Hunting Resources (How To Get A Job In Intel)

Two of our students (Thanks, Mike and John!) recently pointed me towards some interesting resources if you are looking for a job in the US national security intelligence community.

The first is a new resume database sponsored by the Director of National Intelligence. The service allows job-seekers to submit their resumes one time and have it be available to the entire intelligence community for up to a year after submission.

I don't see this as a replacement for more traditional ways of applying for jobs in the US IC but it is a welcome addition. I think it will help the IC most in those crisis or hard to fill positions (like if something major goes down in Burkina Faso and you are one of the few speakers of dioula in the US...).

The other resource was actully put together by John. It is a list of links to all of the contractors he could find who, according to John, currently "have openings for either intelligence analysts, cyber analysts, or both." The links go directly to the career/jobs page of the 40+ companies he identified so there is no needless hunting and pecking through some corporate website for the right place to search for positions and apply.

John's list of places with job openings seems to have gone down.
