NSA announces web project to improve federal hiring, retention
<![CDATA[The National Security Agency has announced that it is planning to launch an intelligence-hiring website for those interested in working with the NSA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and other security agencies in the United States. That “brand-new applicant gateway” is expected to go live in the fall. The website is expected to include tools to help applicants determine what types of jobs are available within the government’s intelligence agencies, and will have diagnostic tests available to assist candidates in finding the position for which they would be the best fit. This is in an effort to improve employee retention by providing information to applicants, as well as improve the hiring process by allowing managers to interview high-quality candidates that have self-qualified and are serious about jobs in the intelligence community. “It takes a while for our employees to come in and develop the skills they need to execute the tradecraft of our incredible mission,” said NSA Human Resources Director Kathy Hutson. “To think that employees would come in and be out the door in two to three years, it will not serve them well and it probably won’t serve our mission well.” Applicants are required to undergo proctored or unproctored exams as part of the application process for the NSA, depending on the position for which they are applying. They also must provide a slew of background information about their previous education, experience and military service. The new NSA portal will likely be similar to existing government job site USAjobs.gov.]]>
