All applicants must apply to a specific vacancy announcement. All applications must be submitted electronically. ODNI makes employment decisions based on a fair and equitable competitive hiring process where applicants’ qualifications (education, professional experience, and skill set) are reviewed and evaluated.
Once a candidate selection has been made, a secondary phase of ODNI’s hiring process is security processing. All applicants will need to be prepared to undergo a thorough background investigation examining the applicant’s life history, character, trustworthiness, reliability, and soundness of judgment. The ODNI utilizes polygraph examiners to conduct a polygraph exam on all employment candidates. Another phase of ODNI’s hiring process includes a thorough mental and physical medical examination in relation to performing essential job functions.
A career in intelligence can be enormously rewarding and also demanding. Not only is it required for intelligence professionals to be highly competent in their professional fields, ODNI employees must also be highly reliable, trustworthy, and possess a high level of personal integrity.
Once an applicant has received an offer of employment and has successfully completed the security and medical processing, a security clearance may be granted. The clearance process is strictly governed by rules and regulations derived from Federal statute and executive orders. It involves a thorough examination of the applicant’s life history and ability to safeguard the nation’s secrets. The clearance process can be lengthy - possibly taking up to four to six months. Individuals already cleared at the TS/SCI level may experience expedited security processing.
Due to the volume of applications received, applicants will only be contacted if they have been selected for an interview.
To verify receipt of your application package ONLY, you may call 703-275-3663.
