Home > Careers > How to Apply

The process of applying for a job in the Intelligence Community (IC) is an involved one, which can take as much as a year or more to complete. It begins with you submitting your application through an on-line application system. Once you have been given a conditional offer of employment for a particular position, the security clearance process will be initiated. Only after you have been granted the proper clearance for your desired position, can your hiring be made official and you can begin your career in the IC.

To apply for IC jobs, you need to visit individual IC agency sites and follow their instructions. . Applications for a specific position or agency cannot be made directly from this website.
