Chinese or Asian? Work for the CIA!

Apparently the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) did some recruitment with advertisements placed in Southern California’s Chinese language newspapers during the recent Lunar New Year. According to World Journal, a full-page CIA advertisement with a majestic tiger figure and “Happy New Year” in Chinese characters ran in the newspaper for three days during the holiday.

According to the World Journal, the agency said it wished to increase its number of ethnic minority employees by 22 to 30 percent in 2012. Recruited employees receive training in languages and decoding skills, as well as other topics. In addition to investigators, the CIA is also looking for scientists, statistics analysts, psychologists, language teachers and administration officers and managers, with wages paying $35,000 to $120,000 dollars annually. So if you’ve ever wanted to be a Secret Asian/Agent Man/Woman, here’s your chance.

I'm a recent dad and husband. Other adjectives that describe me include: son, brother, geek, DIYer, manager, teacher, tinkerer, amateur horologist, gay, and occasional couch potato. I write for about 5 different blogs including 8Asians. When not doing anything else, I like to challenge people's preconceived notions of who I should be.
