FBI Terrorist Screening Center seeking Wounded Warriors for internship/career opportunities

The FBI's Terrorist Screening Center (TSC) is expanding its program to
offer Wounded Warrior internships and career opportunities.  Over the
last 2 months, the TSC has extended offers for full-time employment to 3
Wounded Warriors and has offered internships to 13 others (6 of which
are currently being processed).  The TSC internship program is designed
to teach or improve job skills while Wounded Warriors are still on
active duty and being processed for separation from their respective
service branch.  It also allows them to gain a security clearance making
them more marketable dependent upon their career goals.

In short, the TSC's goal is to make them more competitive in the job
market and, should the opportunity present itself, hire them at the TSC
as openings are available.  The TSC also encourages Wounded Warriors who
have already separated from the service to send in resumes that will be
considered when filling job openings.  The TSC is located outside the DC
Metro Area beltway near the I-66 corridor.  Applicants must be eligible
for a top secret clearance from the FBI.  These standards can be found

The TSC was created by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 6 to
consolidate the government's approach to terrorist screening by creating
a single comprehensive database of known or reasonably suspected
terrorists; and to make this consolidated list available to federal,
state, and local screeners through the TSC's 24/7 call center.

What We Do

Supporting the Front Line Against Terrorism

That's what the Terrorist Screening Center, or TSC, is all about. Born
out of the events of 9/11, and created in 2003, the TSC maintains the
U.S. Government's consolidated Terrorist Watchlist-a single database of
identifying information about those known or reasonably suspected of
being involved in terrorist activity. By supporting the ability of
front-line screening agencies to positively identify known or suspected
terrorists trying to obtain visas, enter the country, board aircraft, or
engage in other activity, the consolidated Terrorist Watchlist is one of
the most effective counterterrorism tools for the U.S. government.

Consolidating the Governments Watchlists into a Single Database

Before the TSC was created, various government agencies maintained
nearly a dozen separate watchlists designed to screen persons of
interest to US law enforcement and intelligence officials. While some
lists were shared, there was little integration and cooperation, and
there was no central clearinghouse where all law enforcement and
government screeners could access the best information about a potential
person of interest. That all changed when TSC consolidated the
government's approach to terrorism screening and today, the TSC is the
global authority for watchlisting and identifying known and suspected

Maintaining the Terrorist Watchlist, the No-Fly List, and the Selectee

The Terrorist Watchlist (a.k.a., the Terrorist Screening Database or
TSDB), contains thousands of records that are updated daily and shared
with federal, state, local, territorial, tribal law enforcement, and
intelligence community members as well as international partners to
ensure that individuals with links to terrorism are appropriately
screened. The No-Fly and Selectee Lists are two much smaller subsets of
the Terrorist Watchlist.

Protecting Privacy and Safeguarding Civil Liberties

The TSC only receives information collected by other government entities
with pre-existing legal authority to do so. Each agency that contributes
data to the TSC must comply with the law, as well as its own policies
and procedures to protect privacy rights and civil liberties.
