A selection of jobs currently on offer in the military-industrial complex, quoted from Wired:

Spooky CIA contractor MVM, Inc. is looking for part-time Yiddish linguists. Today, Yiddish is mainly spoken by certain ultra-Orthodox Jewish sects and a handful of revivalists. Now the question is: What in the world is a CIA-linked firm trying to translate from Yiddish?
Apply for the job now, ask questions later. That’s the attitude CIA contractor MVM is looking for, as it recruits “teachers” for a little gig down in Mexico, teachers who also happen to be former U.S. law enforcement officers who speak Spanish, have at least 15 years experience in counter-drug intelligence work, and have knowledge of Mexican, Central American and South American “drug trafficking activities including personalities, organizations and trafficking routes”.
