The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States of America launched its first ad on online streaming services in a bid to reach potential recruits where they are - on digital platforms - and to show its diversity credentials. "Advertising on streaming services is an important step forward to reach talented Americans with the diversity of experiences we require to continue to be the world’s premier intelligence service,” said Director Gina Haspel,the first woman to head the Agency. Since she took over, all five CIA directorates have become headed up by women. What do you think of the campaign - would it attract you to explore a career with this employer? Will advertising clandestine careers help contribute to a more diverse and open society in the long run? Despite morale issues and better-paid opportunities at tech giants for young people, CIA recruitment numbers for 2019 were reportedly their best on record in the past decade. The Agency, which traditionally recruits largely at events such as graduate job fairs, expects the new online drive to boost that further. Does this campaign fit the bill?
