What does an Intelligence Officer do?

Are you interested in gathering information? Do like being in charge? Do you want run missions? Then an intelligence officer may be the job for you. As an intelligence officer, you gather information on missions and report that information back to your supervisors. Agencies that use intelligence officers include the military, armed forces, police, civilian intelligence agencies, and customs agencies.

Gathering the tools for the trade

As an intelligence officer, you may need observation and record keeping skills, including computer skills. You may also conduct interviews, assess situations, and write reports on given situations. Communications skills are also extremely useful as you may need to acquire information from other people, lead employees, and report to your supervisor with the acquired information. You may also need to be flexible and accommodating as the situation arises.

Educating for intelligence

The level of education required to become an intelligence officer depends on what agency you decide to work for. All agencies will require a high school degree or GED. In the military, training is required and the length of training varies depending on your exact job specifications. Some agencies may require a bachelor's degree in a certain areas of specialty for that agency.

Moving up in the field

As an intelligence officer, you can work under a supervisor, or work your way up to controlling a large group of intelligence officers. You could also move up to a coordination position where you collaborate with other agencies. Or, you may choose to be an advisor to other agencies.

Money in the intellect market

Because there are multiple markets you can work in as an intelligence officer, the median level of pay varies by agency. You may want to choose an organization that you would like to have a long career in to become an intelligence officer. Most of the opportunities to advance are within the agency. Intelligence officers are common workers at government and military organizations. You may even work your way up to such areas as counter-intelligence, counter-espionage, and counter-proliferation, in order to detect and prevent organized crime and even terrorism.
