    Few careers put language skills to a more steady and compelling use than a position with us. As an NSA linguist, you will be involved in activities that focus on the expert translation, transcription, reporting, and analysis of materials of national concern. You may be involved in projects that have global ramifications. We are particularly interested in those individuals who are proficient in Asian, Middle Eastern, or Slavic languages.

    A linguistic career with the NSA develops your ability to evaluate communications, taking into account cultural and political factors of current and historical value. You may also be called upon to further your understanding of a culture in which a certain language is spoken, expanding your horizons more than a comparable career in business, commerce, or academia normally would. In short, your language skills will make a world of difference here.

    Let's speak about your advancement potential. As an NSA linguist you may take on additional research and reporting responsibilities; apply for field assignments abroad; elect to teach at our National Cryptologic School using live language broadcasting via SCOLA (Satellite Communications for Learning Association); learn new languages at our National Cryptologic School or through reimbursed language courses at prestigious local colleges and universities.

    The NSA advantages are hard to ignore-important work, real-world impact, strong growth potential, and the world's best language resources. Interested candidates, please forward your resume to: US Citizenship is required of all applicants.
