Spies on Facebook

Students can find their jobs on facebook now, government agencies are using facebook and other social-networking sites to recruit students and new employees.

The CIA and the National Security Agency have both created 'Pages' on facebook offering employment opportunities to users. Jobs range from accountants to analytic methodologists to cryptanalysts.
"I think it is nice that the employers are trying to reach out and touch us," Elizabeth Evans said. "I have been trying to get internships and jobs, but I feel like I have to look everywhere. It is nice for them to start connecting with young people through a network they already use."

Students can find these pages by visiting facebook or going to the CIA's or the National Security Agency's websites.
