What this job is about

No, it doesn't mean you're automatically a genius – but Intelligence Operators do have to have serious brain power to do their jobs. As the agents that collect, monitor and analyze data from various sources for military operations (think surveillance cameras or computer data), they need excellent critical thinking skills to decipher just what it all means. The information is then supplied to superior officers to help make tactical decisions. So basically, you're the Google of military operations. It's the ideal job for someone who wants job security, a daily challenge and who doesn't mind operating according to strict protocol.
