Information Sessions for Professional Job Opportunities in the CIA
The Lebanese Collegiate Network co-hosted four Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Information Sessions during the last week of April 2008. The University Lebanese Clubs that participated in these info sessions included UCLA, USC, California Polytechnic Pomona, and UC Irvine. More than 100 students attended and engaged the CIA representatives with several intuitive questions that ranged from salary, commitment and policies. They also learned about the more than 100 career opportunities available to them at the organization. These include Analytical Positions, Clandestine Service, Language Positions, Scientist, Engineer, Technology and Support Services.
In addition, the CIA donated $500 per info-session to the LCN. Each dollar is invested back to the LCN membership in the form of scholarships, awards, and subsidized costs to events. The CIA also purchased the food for all student attendants
The LCN’s mission is to develop its membership academically and professionally and believes that the opportunities the CIA offers meet those goals. The LCN looks forward to more info-sessions with the CIA in the future. The CIA is not an elected part of the United States Government, it is an apolitical (vice appointed) institution. In this aspect, it is similar to institutions such as the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), or the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Each institution provides a vast array of job opportunities. Students in the U.S. with a U.S. Citizenship and/or proper paperwork have the right to be employed at any one (and more) of the above listed institutions.
The LCN executive board is dedicated to increasing the number of professional opportunities available to our membership and hopes other companies and employers take advantage of this program to meet talented LCN students from various Universities .
The LCN would especially like to thank the four ULC’s for co-hosting the event.
