My spouse is having some difficulty finding this type of position, but meets almost all the requirements that have been discussed. The exception is 4yrs intel analyst experience, however, during an internship he achieved analyst-level publications and will soon complete a master's degree in security and intelligence study. His other background, to help clarify, involves security clearances, active military service, and deployment. Can anyone give some guidance on what might be preventing his consideration for positions such as these? Certainly, I'm biased, but there's only one way to interpret a 3.9 GPA.
