Though it sounds like a job that only exists in the movies, the role of CIA is very real and available to average citizens in the United Sates. There are certain prerequisites of course, including the fact that CIA agents must be of a certain age, are advised to be able to speak certain languages (particularly languages that are relevant in the world today, including a variety of Middle Eastern languages, Chinese, Russian, and some African languages), and must have a college degree before they can expect to be given a job. The lives of innocent people are on the line when the CIA is involved, so naturally, they only want to choose the most competent people that they can in order to guarantee the safety of American citizens, and of course, citizens in other countries too. To become a CIA agent, one must do more than have a degree or speak another language. There are also tests that they must pass, and these tests include questions that take into account personality and logical reasoning. Some questions that may be encountered in a standard CIA test include “When is it legal for the police to perform a search?”, “Who founded the CIA?”, “What is more effective to extract information: physiological or physical torture?”, “When was the CIA founded?”, “In what state are the CIA headquarters located?” and “Around how many tweets per day does the CIA read?” You may also have to answer personality-based questions.
