OTTAWA, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- Real spies are appearing in recruiting videos posted online by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
Five CSIS videos featuring real employees were posted on YouTube last week, describing various positions the agency would like to fill, the Globe and Mail reported.
The agents use only their first names, although it isn't clear if those are their real names.
Their faces are clearly visible in the videos, in which they recreate situations in various cities of what agents can face. It also isn't known if the agents work in the specialty fields they describe.
In one of the videos, taped in Montreal, a female host identifies herself as Andrea and says, "I'm a follower and a wallflower and I'm good at it."
CSIS said its agents would tour job fairs this fall to recruit new employees, the report said.
The secretive spy agency has never put faces to its employees in the past, the Globe said.
It is one of few federal agencies with job vacancies, as most other departments are under order to cut staffing and costs.
