Full Text of JOE Listing:
The CIA seeks economists to assess foreign economic policies and foreign financial issues - licit as well as illicit - that affect US security interests. They work closely with political, leadership and military analysts throughout the Intelligence Community in producing current and longer-term intelligence products. There is a particular need for country/regional economists with strong backgrounds on East Asia, the Middle East and South Asia, and for specialists in international banking systems, financial markets, financial transactions, financial instruments, and energy. Economic analysts will also assess illicit financial activities, including networks used by terrorist and criminal groups, financing and procurement of weapons of mass destruction, money laundering and corruption among foreign governments and companies.

Candidates with a bachelor's or a master's degree in economics, finance, business administration, international management, or economic crimes management or a related area, with a strong concentration on international finance, banking or international business are encouraged to apply. Candidates with a strong macroeconomic background, excellent financial analysis skills and analytical skills, and foreign area expertise will also be considered. Competitive candidates typically will have relevant experience, and strong oral expression and writing skills, including the demonstrated ability to write concise prose.
