The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.
Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

politics and economy; and the ability to use the latest technology and

to a wide range of adult students, from beginners to those at a more
advanced proficiency level, and experience in program and/or education
management. As part of the screening and interview process, applicants will
be required to take language proficiency tests in their native language.
Advanced English proficiency is also required.
Salaries are based on the individual applicant's qualifications. In addition to
base salary of $56,857 - $97,333. Language Instructors earn annual 'bonus'
pay ranging from $4,875 to $9,750, with the amount based on the language

foreign languages may also qualify for additional bonuses in varying amounts.
Furthermore, new employees can qualify for a lump-sum hiring bonus for

All applicants must successfully complete a thorough medical and
psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background
investigation. U.S. citizenship is required.

not have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal
drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the medical
and security processing.
Important Notice: Friends, family, individuals, or organizations may be
interested to learn that you are an applicant for or an employee of the CIA.
Their interest, however, may not be benign or in your best interest. You
cannot control whom they would tell. We therefore ask you to exercise
discretion and good judgment in disclosing your interest in a position with the
Agency. You will receive further guidance on this topic as you proceed
through your CIA employment processing.
