#DOD $$ #Budget #Navy Transformation Plan: FY 2014-2016  @ICDefenseJobs … What does the Navy want to buy? First, understand where the Navy is going and what it says it wants to do. RED FLAG/Need to Know: Just as Boeing recently announced that it plans to trim $6 billion in supply channel spending ($4 billion in defense channels), the Navy says that it wants to “Maximize IT Functionality”. The Navy radically changed some of its spending habits in 2010 (FY2011), and it looks like it wants to do it again. The Navy’s focus: “Today’s fiscal environment and rapid pace of technological innovation demand that the DON rethink its approach to Information Management (IM), Information Technology (IT)/cyberspace and Information Resource Management (IRM) policies, processes and programs.” Nice words, good words for taxpayers, but these words mean: ‘Get more for less’.

Career Advice / Who are the best headhunters for Top Secret intelligence professionals to seek out?

Question

What are the best ‘headhunters’ to talk to regarding positions both in DC and the New England area for a mid-high level TS/SCI cleared intel professional?

Answer

None. Nada. It really does not matter what part of the country you live in: headhunters very rarely are in search mode for intelligence professionals … except maybe at the CXX level.

Headhunters or executive search specialists are generally interested in only the most rare of professionals. That is because companies normally only turn to them once they have exhausted all less expensive methods to find you.

A headhunter or some such can cost a company 20-35 percent of your first year of income in fees. So companies generally try other methods first ~~ which, when it comes to intelligence professionals ~~ are often successful enough that headhunters rarely (as in extremely rarely) are used to find cleared intelligence professionals.

Reality is that through 2016, cleared intelligence professionals will be fairly abundant and many will be willing to work at lower rates than before the 2013-2014 years.

Your best bet is to A) network; let other professionals know that you are in the market; B) post your resume to clearance-centric jobboards like ours; and C) make Google your best friend and search for positions in locations that match your Subject Matter Expert (SME) qualifications. Example: put Google to work by searching on some term like Logistics Subject Matter Expert Job or Transnational Financial Transactions Subject Matter Expert. Do that and you will find that the intelligence jobs are out there ~~ even if they do not call them intelligence specialist positions.

Here are some quicklinks to some currently available Intelligence professional jobs.

Career Advice / New MA Graduate / No Security Clearance / What is a Think Tank?

QUESTION

I recently came across your site while trying to get my foot in the door to the intelligence community. I am a MA graduate in War Studies from a major university and have several years of work experience in unrelated fields.

Unfortunately, I do not have a security clearance. This has been a major stumbling block for me though my job search. Do you have any advice on how best to get myself in this field with this in mind?

ANSWER

The security clearance will remain a huge hurdle for you so my recommendation is that you should go in a different but parallel direction.

You need to become a consultant with organizations that think about doctrine, scenarios and policy.

One such organization is the Institute for Defense Analyses, www.IDA.org, a not-for-profit corporation that operates three Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) in the public interest: the Systems and Analyses Center, the Science and Technology Policy Institute, and the Center for Communications and Computing. IDA exists to promote national security, preserve the public welfare, and advance scientific learning by analyzing, evaluating, and reporting on matters of interest to the United States Government.

Rarely is a security clearance needed.

The IDA falls within the category of ‘Defense Policy Think Tank’. Here is more information on this category of employers and career opportunities: http://tinyurl.com/odv55qa

Often you can get hired on with one of these organizations: starting at the bottom, or not too far therefrom, as an information research analyst supporting a team of analysts. Where you go from there depends upon your innovativeness in proposing solutions to tough problems and then presenting the data behind your recommendations.
