British Citizen? Time to apply to MI6

POLITICS - Are you a British citizen? Have you always wanted to be a secret agent like James Bond?

Well MI6 (aka Britain's Secret Intelligence Service) is looking for new recruits and has even made a test on their website (see www.sis.gov.uk/output/self-selection-tool.html) to see if you have the memory skills to be an agent.

All you have to do is memorize the following cover story:

"You're stationed in Transeuratania. You're a vegetarian and the food isn't especially good in Metropoligrad – unlike the coffee, which costs less than a Shilling for a pot at the best hotel. Your name is Stephanie Johnson. You were born on 14th December 1974 in Skegness. At A Level, you gained an A in Geography, an A in French and a B in Economics. You have two sisters and a brother. You studied Geology at university and now work as a Management Consultant for a company called British Coal Associates."

And then answer 8 multiple choice questions in less than 2 minutes.

Even if you're not a British citizen its still fun to take the test. (I scored 8 out of 8, but unfortunately I am Canadian not British.)

After the test, and assuming you score at least a 7 or 8, you're asked if you'd be interested in applying to become an agent overseas.

If only CSIS or the CIA offered similar tests for people interested in applying.

And even if you can't be a government spy fighting Communists or terrorists there is also corporate spies.
