CIA hosting conference at MSU on career and student opportunities

The Central Intelligence Agency will host its inaugural “CIA Day” conference on career and student opportunities at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center Nov. 17. This is the first time the CIA is holding this conference in Michigan.

The full-day conference will feature remarks from CIA recruiters who will exclusively discuss career and student opportunities at the CIA and will facilitate a set of workshops giving students a glimpse at how the Agency works.

The exchange of information at this conference will provide students with information on potential career opportunities at the CIA and give community leaders from local groups insight into how the Agency addresses national security challenges.

The workshops at the conference, which are specifically designed for the students, will discuss the functions of the Agency’s directorates and how foreign intelligence is collected, analyzed, evaluated and disseminated to assist the President and senior U.S. government policymakers in making decisions related to national security.

The conference will include the following workshops:

• Technical Networks Workshop

• Life in the Directorate of Operations

• Technical Simulation

• Making a Winning Impression: Tips on Successful Interview Behaviors

• Analytic Simulation
