Preparing for A Career in Intelligence: Thoughts on Personal Security and Behavior

Former CIA officer Maggie Gwynne joins me to discuss how those interested in pursuing a career in intelligence should manage their profiles (online and off) and conduct themselves to prepare for a challenging recruitment and training period.

Maggie Gwynne is a former officer of the CIA’s Directorate of Operations, where she served in the Middle East and North Africa. She is an active mentor for several organizations, including one - Girl Security - that provides mentorship to young women ages 14 and up interested in national security.
