NSA app to help recruit cyber experts

Looking for a job? There’s and app for that.

The National Security Agency has unveiled two smartphone applications to help the NSA recruit cybersecurity experts.

The NSA app — Career Links — is available through iTunes and delivers real-time agency updates like employment opportunities to iPhone and Droid users.

GovInfoSecurity reports that NSA is also employing smartphones’ tagging abilities on many of its print-based recruitment advertisements. This means future recruits can use their phones to scan these tags which will launch a video related to the advertisement’s content.
