NSA To Participate in the First Intelligence Community Virtual Career Fair

The National Security Agency (NSA) will participate in the first Intelligence Community (IC) Virtual Career Fair on Tuesday, March 16, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. ET. This free, online event will allow registered job seekers to learn about available IC jobs, including NSA careers, interact with recruiters online, and apply to open positions from the comfort of their homes.

“We’re excited to be able to use the latest information technology to ‘virtually’ reach out to talented applicants across the Nation and let them know about the exciting career opportunities here at NSA and across the IC,” said NSA Human Resources director Kathy Hutson.

The IC, an integrated network of agencies that work together to protect our Nation’s security, is seeking a culturally diverse, technically savvy workforce for exciting careers in a number of fields. The virtual career fair will highlight hundreds of career opportunities available nationwide in a wide array of disciplines to include cybersecurity/information assurance, intelligence analysis, business management, engineering, and foreign languages.

Attendees will also be able to live-chat with recruiters, learn about and apply to open positions, watch video presentations, participate in live questions and answer sessions, upload/manage documents in their virtual briefcase, and create avatars of themselves – all in a 3-D environment.

Other participating agencies include: Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Department of Homeland Security, Navy Intelligence, National Reconnaissance Office, and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

Interested individuals can register now online at www.ICVirtualFair.com. After March 16, the IC Virtual Career Fair will be accessible on demand for 90 days (until June 14, 2010) without chat capabilities. Online registration will be open until the close of the 90-day on-demand period.
