The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory 
hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, 
ethnicity, nationality, disability, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set 
up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Instructors of Arabic, Chinese/Mandarin, Dari, French, German, Greek, 
Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Pashto, Persian (Farsi), Russian, Serbo-
Croatian, and Turkish to work in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

The CIA provides first-class training for energetic, creative and committed 
intelligence professionals. CIA Language Instructors deliver programs that 
provide students with the foreign language communications skills and cross-
cultural awareness they need to live and work abroad effectively, or to 
perform other language-related duties. Foreign Language Instructors apply the 
latest instructional methodologies to meet highly customized student needs 
and conduct language proficiency testing in reading, speaking and 
understanding for skills evaluation. In addition, they may be asked to provide 
a variety of language support services worldwide.

Minimum requirements include a Bachelor's in foreign language, linguistics or 
a related field; native fluency in the language; 2-5 years of teaching 
experience; demonstrated knowledge of the respective area's history, culture, 
politics and economy; and the ability to use the latest technology and 
teaching techniques. Also desired are experience in teaching language skills 
to a wide range of adult students, from beginners to those at a more 
advanced proficiency level, and experience in program and/or education 
management. As part of the screening and interview process, applicants will 
be required to take language proficiency tests in their native language. 
Advanced English proficiency is also required.

Salaries are based on the individual applicant's qualifications. In addition to 
base salary of $56,857 - $97,333. Language Instructors earn annual 'bonus' 
pay ranging from $4,875 to $9,750, with the amount based on the language 
and their language proficiency. Language Instructors who speak multiple 
foreign languages may also qualify for additional bonuses in varying amounts. 
Furthermore, new employees can qualify for a lump-sum hiring bonus for 
languages, up to a maximum amount of $35,000.

All applicants must successfully complete a thorough medical and 
psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background 
investigation. U.S. citizenship is required.

To be considered suitable for Agency employment, applicants must generally 
not have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal 
drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the medical 
and security processing.
