Im watching Homeland and it made me want to work for the CSIS lmao. Imagine infiltrating ISIS, befriend with their leader and behead him all of a sudden, take his head and run to your plane and bring the head to Harper and Obama.
Prepare yourself for the excitement of pushing paper.

"The fact is that, despite the sleek videos, the job for CSIS’s newbies can be mind-numbingly boring. ...Once you get inside CSIS, the carefully crafted artifice reflected in this batch of videos crumbles. Disappointment and disillusionment set in."

I don't know, giving your consent to be 100% exposed and monitored for the rest of your life, doesn't sit well with me.
Not that it's any better, when they are doing it without your knowledge!

Most spy jobs are desk bound and not like TV.

I can't believe some of the questions they ask.

Some are against anti-discrimination labour laws.

How do they get away with this?

They want to make sure you are loyal to Canada, and not crazy.

You know that you are not supposed to disclose all this information...you have signed a confidentiality agreement regarding the selection process. You could be sue for disclosing all that stuff over the web...just saying...
Be afraid. The big bad boogie man is gonna get ya. LOL. Being prepared for the interview process when job hunting is what more often than not helps you land the position.

That's not the point. It's an agreement you sign before the interview. You are free to do whatever you want, but I think it should be reminded.

I applied for two positions, including intelligence officer, back in november. I have a masters degree, speak two foreign languages and have several public and private sector internships, and I have heard nothing from them at all. Really surprised.
Why are you surprised? There's at least 10 of you graduating with the same resume as you in every school in the country?

I think the non-response is explained by CSIS's policy that they don't want to hire people who are stupid enough to work for free.
