  • Intelligence Agents with the State Dept?

    Is anyone here familiar with/ or work for the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research? This is their website: www.state.gov/s/inr/ Their website is incredibly small, and thus does not contain alot of information. I have made some recent posts asking about who might investigate international crimes, and was curious if this part of the intelligence community was akin to it. Id be especially interested if there are any individuals who work for this group, and could explain what they do on a day to day basis.

    If you want to have the title of Federal Agent inside the United States, but also be able to investigate/provide security in other countries, I would suggest checking out the DSS: http://www.state.gov/m/ds/career/c8853.htm

    The FBI, and ICE also have agents on the ground over in Iraq if that helps.

          This is not a law enforcement agency. Its mission is intelligence collection and analysis.

            First of all if you want info Military.Com would be a better site and if you can't find it there then they will direc you to the right place. Also I would think Opsec would be all around this postion, all I can tell you is they require some previous experience and it is very hard to get in this field on the civillan side, your only other option is in the Military and well that path is not easy to get trhough on, but if you do get into the field you will make around 100K starting out if you go corporation and gov't obviously less.

            Sorry forgot one thing. CIA and State Dept are the same thing I.E. backstabbers

              military.com sucks ***. Monster bought it a while back and all they are trying to do is make money.....not help folks out.

              Most of the boards are filled with trolls and folks that don't know what the hell they are talking abuot (like here at times).....but at least here folks will call them out and get them banned if they are idiots.....over there they don't....

                  No biggie. A lot of folks don't know that monster.com bought it and is using it as a tool for their main website....

                  I get at least three spams a day from them on one of my alternative email addresses.....thank goodness that it's not my primary one or I would have some big issues with them.

                    I don't know about the job specifically but I would think it would not be very law enforcement minded. While some intelligence you process might be used in criminal investigations most information you process would be diplomatic or national security by nature. Foreign Service personnel are always learning bits and pieces of information that think might have to be filtered up the chain of command. Intel folks for state would be responsible for reviewing info collected by state employees, judging it for importance, and consolidating it into reports for higher up folks.

                    Have you looked around 911jobs website for info? There's some DSS folks on that site who might have day to day interaction with folks from the intel side of the house.
                    If you see me running try to keep up!

                      DSS vs Intel

                      I don't have first hand experience, but I've gotten a conditional offer of employment from DSS and they seem like a great agency so far. A friend of mine is now an RSO in Nairobi with DSS, before that he was in state dept intel, he's very happy he made the transition. There's a special on A and E called escape from Liberia, about DSS agents in Monrovia that's pretty interesting if you run across it.

                        Simple answer: All analysts. I have a couple friends in the Bureau of Intelligence and Research who graduated from GSPIA. I’m pretty sure they don’t do much collection, no HUMINT. I’m under the impression they just analyze already collected intel (SIGINT, MASINT, COMINT, IMINT, etc…). Not law enforcement at all, no case officers (like the CIA), small budget, and not much say in the overall intelligence community.
                        On the other hand I heard I&R is a great place to work, rarely travel but easy going and interesting.
