Key traits for all successful candidates include:

  • Being a flexible, team player who is open to continuous learning about a wide-range of topics

  • Having an interest in “connecting the dots” between disparate data points or discrete, all-source products in order to tell a relatively succinct, compelling narrative that either:

    • Makes a recommendation to further the customer’s mission, or

    • Makes an “ask” of a targeted audience to bolster or advance U.S. national security interests.

  • Prior customer-specific report writing experience

Required Education, Experience, & Skills
