    Thanks, John. I would have expected a better feint from the NSA than pretending that they don’t ALREADY KNOW if someone were interested in working for them.
    I’d think a jollier, more-upbeat approach might work better, perhaps with this jingle:
    “We’re the NSA.
    We see you when you’re sleeping
    We know when you’re awake
    We know if you’ve been bad or good
    So be good for goodness sake.”

    As an alternative: something edgier, with a retro feel:

    Number Six: Where am I?
    Number Two: In the NSA Village.
    Number Six: What do you want?
    Number Two: Information.
    Number Six: Whose side are you on?
    Number Two: That would be telling. We want information… information… information.
    Number Six: You won’t get it.
    Number Two: By hook or by crook, we will.
    Number Six: Who are you?
    Number Two: The new Number Two.
    Number Six: Who is Number One?
    Number Two: You are Number Six.
    Number Six: I am not a number! I am a free man!
    Number Two: [laughs]

    Happy Friday, ‘Cruitaz!

    @Keith – You misunderstand the purpose of the agency. It isn’t snooping. It’s merely a government-run backup service for us taxpayers.

    BTW, had a nice chat with nhvtq.oodmuwde at Universum’s Employer Branding Conference a few weeks back. We talked about ways to improve the NSA’s cryptorecruiting process to improve the results (well, at least I think these ways would)…
