Other Positions

Spies are only a tiny fraction of the individuals employed by the CIA. Most employees work in the open, either sitting behind a desk or out in the field investigating matters overtly. These are the people who work with local law enforcement, perform raids, give press conferences and answer the phone when someone calls in with a tip.

There are a wide variety of positions at the CIA, including analysts, cryptographers, security personnel, field agents, secretaries, technicians, communications specialists, IT, etc.
