For U.S. citizens who have worked in the intelligence community in the past or have, at minimum, a secret-level clearance, this may “soon ” be your chance to freelance in the intelligence community for short term contracts.I am a member of this particular community building the website, but it is a project under construction. This is much like what I envisioned on a global, professional scale.
There have been many freelance websites cropping up in the past year or so. Many of these have been more geek oriented in application. This is another one of those sites that are subject-matter specific however. If you are interested in pursuing a second level, 1099 type career with short-term revenue potential, this may be the site for you to bookmark now.
Remember, you must have an “active” secret or top secret security clearance to pursue a position in the U.S. intelligence field, even a temporary one. I am sure, however, that some confidential positions may become available over time. The site is not active to the outside world as yet. One of the major contributors to this project is the U.S. D.I.A. I am also 100% certain that the NSA, FBI and CIA are funding this project as well. I still have many friends working in all of these agencies at present. There are some other initiatives coming on line that are similar in construct, mostly by the D.I.A. Therefore, eventually you will see positions available from most, if not all, of the agencies on the website.

Other current projects:
I first became a member of this particular organization many years ago, when it was first a LinkedIn group. It has since become a far more serious organization, outside of LinkedIn, and is slowly integrating itself into the active intelligence community, with many other projects oriented towards past and present intelligence community members. Two of these projects under development are oriented towards crowd-funding and small business development (for members). If you have been part of the intelligence community in the past (or presently are), you may want to register on the website for some of these current and future benefits. Specific branch or agency association is not relevant for membership. I believe they still require proof of current or past affiliation however. There is an annual membership fee associated with membership.
Remember, once you have been in the community, you never really leave.
