Here's a note from a fraternity little sister. It's OK to post my name. I've removed her home phone number and email, so if anyone wants more info, they can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 505-672-4053.
As many of you already know, I am a "technical" recruiter for NSA. That means that I have a full time position doing other NSA "stuff" and I volunteer to support the Recruiting and Hiring Office. Some of you may have observed, while I was at Homecoming last October. In any event the Agency sent out email to the entire workforce this morning encouraging employees to "refer qualified candidates to apply to our hard-to-fill vacancies." The Agency is even awarding monetary and time-off incentives for referral(s) who actually "enter on duty". Since I'm already involved with recruiting, I get zippp, except possibly a pat on the head, and that's only if you mention my name in the referral. The economy is impacting everyone, but NSA is hiring! I want to offer any assistance to anyone who's interested in submitting a resume. "No skill community has been left out." Visit www.nsa.gov.
The entire web site is supposed to be updated tomorrow, 15 Jan to make it easier to navigate and provide a totally different look/image for NSA. I know and understand the system, since I've been a technical recruiter for over 12 years (even recruited for NSA while I was on active duty.) I am more than happy to answer questions about the Agency or provide pointers on your submission so that it isn't circular-filed before a human being reviews it.
The focus is on technical areas-computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering, math, foreign languages (the hard/more obscure ones or multiple language skills), business/financial/acquisition (especially experience in federal government related acquisition, like contracting), and intelligence analysis.
For me this coming weekend is a 4-day holiday due to the Inauguration. So I should be available or leave a message and I'll return the call. My work number is 202-282-8384. I'm the only one who answers, so leave a message and I'll return the call. Sorry to be so long-winded, but I wanted to inform you all of an available resource (me) and if interested, provide an opportunity. Any discussions with me will be kept strictly confidential.
Your Little Sister,
