U.S. Government Looking for More Translators

As reported by the Washington Times, there is a worrisome shortage of translators in some languages that are crucial in the operations in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and other countries of the region. The Director of the CIA, Leon E. Panetta, said that they are looking to double their staff of translators and linguistic workers for languages such as Pashtu, Dari, and Urdu.

Obviously, applicants will have to pass a very strict background check before being hired, but the opportunity is tremendous for anyone who is qualified.
