The CIA Method

shares with readers During his tenure for the CIA, Dan Crum performed literally thousands of interviews as a Background Investigator. The work involved digging into a prospect’s background, interviewing friends, family, former employees and associates and creating detailed reports and analyses as a result.
During his tenure as a Polygraph Examiner, he conducted hundreds of polygraph tests designed to detect deception and elicit information.  Dan worked as an Adjudicator utilizing foolproof, automated and template-driven systems to filter and hire ideal recruits for each particular department.
After leaving government work to devote himself full-time to the private sector, Dan realized that in his work capacity at the CIA he had actually developed a three-part system to what he called The Credible Information Assurance (CIA) Method.
In other words, Dan:
*Helped stop the CIA from hiring the wrong people
*Created criteria to help identify the ideal candidate for the division/position
*Developed a system for hiring him/her

Subsequently, The CIA Method of securing “Credible Information Assurance” follows this same protocol for stopping the hemorrhage of leapfrogging employees, determining just who it is you’re looking to hire and then creating a foolproof system for hiring them.

Motivational Press is excited to work with Dan Crum to share with readers:

  • Hire like the CIA
  • The Credible Information Assurance (CIA) Method
  • stop hiring the wrong people
  • identify the ideal candidate for the position
  • a system for hiring & firing
