Duties

As an Economic Analyst at CIA, you'll assess foreign economic, trade, and financial interests that affect U.S. security interests. Economists working in regional offices focus on a range of macroeconomic and microeconomic issues facing the country or region, while economists working transnational issues take a broader, global approach to these issues and deep dive into technical details. Analysts may assess illicit financial activities, including terrorist and criminal networks, money laundering, or foreign corruption.

Opportunities exist for foreign and domestic travel, language training, and analytic tradecraft and management training. You will have an opportunity to develop deep substantive expertise and participate in broadening assignments with other offices in the Agency and across the U.S. Government.
