Former All-Source Intelligence Analyst at BAE Systems, Inc
over 1 year ago
To be a successful All-Source Intelligence Analyst you must have excellent written communications skills. Almost all of your work is going to be produced in written format and needs to be made at the most professional level, as it will be reviewed and read by other analysts from all over the Intelligence Community. Beyond being a good writer, the best All-Source Analysts I have seen have supplemental skills that make them standout:
a detailed understanding of all the various Intelligence Disciplines (hence All-Source Analyst)
an ability to make a product useful for an audience outside of the analyst community. Whether that be for the President of the United States or for a Sergeant in Afghanistan.
