I get asked a lot of questions about my career as a spy, specific questions on national security issues, and other security related questions that may not warrant a full security advice tip sheet. I thought why not keep a record for others that might be interested? Please feel free to submit a question through the website or at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to answer. From all of us at Kirsch Group, we are here to help. Stay Safe!
The most frequent question I get asked by applicants to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) is why is my application taking so long? It’s small consolation for those stuck in the process but I can tell you, you’re not alone. My application took about a year and a half and I think that’s pretty standard these days.
In this video I try to explain one of the reasons why and tell a story about my own recruitment process that didn’t make the book.
