Israel's Mossad Spy Agency Turns to Facebook for Recruiting

(Bloomberg) -- Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency is turning to Facebook for headhunting help. 

The Mossad already has a recruiting website. This month it launched a ”Careers” page on Facebook to reach a wider audience and find the best candidates to fill dozens of positions, the spy agency said in an emailed statement.

“If you want an exciting career change, if you always dreamed but never dared, we invite you to examine the possibility of joining one of our several career paths,” one of the posts on the Facebook page says. “We are looking for quality people from an array of disciplines to fill a variety of fascinating and challenging posts.”

The post links back to the Mossad’s website, which lists dozens of job openings ranging from automotive electrician to textile and leather craftsman to cyber specialist. The agency is also looking for Arabic and Persian speakers, decoders, a clinical psychologist and an accountant for a position that includes “unusual field work,” according to the website.
