Mossad wants YOU!December 14, 2010 - 5:38 AM | by: Yonat Friling
With a new leader, the Israeli intelligence agency is looking for new recruits.
In the past few days more than 20 new available posts were published in its website. Among them, are field agents, intelligence officers and computer experts.
The new Head of Mossad, Tamir Pardo, was received a special assignment – to freshen up the rows of the agency. He should be able to change the traditional methods into a more modern and creative.
Among the requirements: willing to make frequent, short trips abroad , “creativity” and readiness to think outside the box, master foreign languages, and have an ability to “create one’s own reality and play a central role in it.”
Most of the openings are for the Caesarea branch of the organization- the operational department that employs combatant units and hit men and women. This branch allegedly participated in the killing of Hammas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in January 2010.
More posts are intended to high-tech experts, acknowledging the important of electronic warfare and intelligence. Security analysts claim that this step proves that the once traditional agency is catching up with the internet revolution and is open to widen its search for people who wouldn’t have been recruited in the past.
Meir Dagan, the outgoing leader wrote in the website “The Mossad’s mainstay is its people. People serving in the Mossad are required to give to Israel of their talents, their dedication and their courage. We are always seeking the best and most suitable to join us. This web site is your gateway. The website describes the spirit and values motivating the Mossad. You will also find information on how to apply to become one of us.”
The Mossad is considered to be one of the top intelligence agencies in the world, and works closely with American and European agencies. In recent years, the prime focus for the Mossad has been to slow down or halt Iran’s nuclear program.
