It's no secret: CIA scouting for recruits
By John Diamond, USA TODAY
LANGLEY, Va. ? The CIA has launched a crash program to clear a backlog of job applicants and hire recruits who can speak Arabic, Korean and other languages critical to national security prioritiesAs recently as five months ago, CIA applicants with sought-after skills such as fluency in Arabic or Korean faced long delays in hiring if they had relatives living overseas, CIA Director Porter Goss says.

To fill the shortage of experts in key languages and meet a presidential order for a 50% increase in analysts and overseas operatives, Goss started an end-to-end overhaul of the recruiting system.

Today, security issues that once took 18 months to overcome are being handled in a matter of weeks, according to Betsy Davis, the agency's No. 2 recruiting official.

Last year, the commission created to investigate the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks criticized the agency's lack of language experts and the delays in obtaining

In reply to: for all you complainers looking for work

I'll take your word for it, Dan

In reply to: for all you complainers looking for work

Though I wonder if even Mark would agree with that assessment. It certainly seems to me that he just doesn't want to take the time or effort to post in a more intelligent manner. I must admit that his practice of regularly making snide, unmeaningful remarks and attacks does prejudice me.

However, I'll complain no further about his refusal to use good spelling and grammar.

Excuse me?

In reply to: I'll take your word for it, Dan

His 'refusal'?????????

Ever consider the possibility that your superior attitude is showing and that you are assuming more than you actually know?

Solution is obvious...

In reply to: for all you complainers looking for work

Don't read 'em.

Saves you from aggravation and saves the rest of us from seeing yuor replies.

Simple.

Amen!

In reply to: Solution is obvious...

in the first place all anyone has to do is read enough of Marks posts and his style becomes clear and very understandable! That is if someone wants to take the time. All of us make mistakes and leave out words sometimes as an example, this from Dan:

Mark, call me Dan, please.
I have asked on several occasions when others have been so rude and inconsiderate as to call me by other names. I suspect you have seen these requests and I ask that honor them.

Thank you,

Dan
