Balancing Transparency and Secrecy in a Digital Age — Central Intelligence Agency
The Office of Public Affairs (OPA) is the single point of contact for all inquiries about the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
We read every letter, fax, or e-mail we receive, and we will convey your comments to CIA officials outside OPA as appropriate. However, with limited staff and resources, we simply cannot respond to all who write to us.

Employment: We do not routinely answer questions about employment beyond the information on this Web site, and we do not routinely answer inquiries about the status of job applications. Recruiting will contact applicants within 45 days if their qualifications meet our needs.
- Because of safety concerns for the prospective applicant, as well as security and
communication issues, the CIA Recruitment Center does not accept resumes, nor can we return
phone calls, e-mails or other forms of communication, from US citizens living outside of the
US. When you return permanently to the US (not on vacation or leave), please visit the CIA Careers page
and apply online for the position of interest.
