Ever feel like you are being watched?

You probably aren’t crazy. The NSA may be spying on you at this very moment.

Now, the government agency has launched one of its largest hiring sprees in 20 years, The Washington Times reports. 


The group has a wide selection to choose from, especially given that 200,000  workers from the Big Tech sector have been reportedly laid off since last year. Currently, the NSA is browsing job boards such as LinkedIn for 3,000 new hires in what it has characterized as an “unprecedented hiring effort in 2023.”

NSA senior talent management strategist Christine Parker indicated that the agency used the tech layoffs as an opportunity to recruit new talent.

“NSA started reaching out through LinkedIn, through some of our career boards, specifically sending messages to people that we thought might be linked to some companies that either were in the news saying they are going to lay off or were predicted to be laid off,” she said in an interview, according to The Times. “Just kind of let them know that we’re here and that we have this robust, ongoing hiring program.”

She claimed that almost 30,000 people viewed the agency’s job postings, with about 2,000 ultimately sending an application in. 

Molly Moore, who is an NSA deputy director of workforce support activities, explained that a career with the agency is attractive to many not only because of the “stability,” but also for “amazing missions, things that people can’t do in private-sector companies for the most part.”


She added, “This is not just a job; it’s a mission.”

Some have expressed concerns about the growing power of the NSA and other government surveillance agencies, especially in the wake of Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files,’ a series of drops that revealed numerous examples of collusion between U.S. surveillance agencies and social media companies to censor numerous political dissidents.

A peculiar video shared on social media allegedly shows then-National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) director William R. Evanina speaking about hiring for the CIA, NSA, and FBI, saying, “Once we get them in, we own them for life… because the mission is so strong, no one ever leaves.” 

Western Journal reported on various examples of the aforementioned collusion:

The CIA, in one example, has had its hand in Twitter’s internal content moderation for years. Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files” revealed “mountains of insistent moderation demands” from the Democratic National Committee, but not from the GOP, according to the New York Post.

In another example, independent journalist and former gubernatorial candidate for California Michael Shellenberger, in an interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” said the FBI efforts to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story looked like a CIA “psychological operation.”

Shellenberger’s reporting uncovered a “disturbing pattern” of “relentless pressure by external FBI agents on Twitter to basically adapt its content moderation, also to share information.”

“Then you had these forces inside Twitter — former FBI officials, particularly Jim Baker — who very strenuously argued for the censorship of the New York Post reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop and the emails that showed these very questionable business dealings with China and other countries,” Schellenberger said.

It seems that 1984 came just a few years late.
