Spies Wanted: CIA Turns to Online Streaming to Recruit New Officers
“Since becoming director, I prioritized how, where, and whom we recruit to be the next generation of CIA officers,” said CIA Director Gina Haspel in a recent news release. “Advertising on streaming services is an important step forward to reach talented Americans with the diversity of experiences we require to continue to be the world’s premier intelligence service,”
Here’s what she’s talking about.
In a speech at Auburn University last year CIA director Gina Haspel said it had the best recruiting year in a decade and wanted to make the agency “an employer of choice for all Americans.”
While the target audience for the streamed video spots is 18-35, all potential recruits would be considered, [CIA spokesperson Nicole] de Haay said.
