    Join the legion by going to France and turning up to the gates of one of their recruiting centres, but I would think about it.

    Not that you are seriously thinking about it.

    You could ask on a website and ensure your name and IP address go down on their list of 'people to never employ'.

    You can't join Cia FBI they require US citezenship.Indeed Mi6 recruit people with degrees but if you don't have the common sense to find their website they won't want you....well maybe you could make tea.....The legion well turn up at fort du nogent or Aubagne but if you can't even use google they won't waste their time. You may get some loosened teeth and a diving trip into the bog.The legion would crush you.They will own you.You will have nothing but the legion and your rifle and you will get a whole new identity.But your taking the piss and trying to get attention broadcasting you want to be ********** James bond. Lol

    CIA: US CITIZEN
    MI6: UK CITIZEN
    FFL: Just turn up at any of their recruiting offices(in french cities) and you'll be dead before you turn 30! (prob)

    Realistically, if you had the quality to join MI6 then you wouldn't be asking this. You'd be working on a history dissertation/skiing in the alps/forking beautiful foreign babe. lol

    Agreed! Firstly to join most of these generally they only choose citezens of their own country. However it's not policy well at least in the sis(mi6). I'm not quite sure about the fbi,cia. However by french legionnaires, I assume you are reffering to the french foreign legion, which is a elite military unit and not the same as cia,fbi,sis(mi6). It's similar to the royal marines and parachute regement. You can join as a soldier, but i think you have to be french to be an officer. Your duties will be no different than a normal french soldiers. You can look at their website for more information. As for sis(mi6) you need a 2:1 degree to join. There are many positions in the sis and some need specific degrees and some just need a degree (non specific). Obviously with your degree you can only go for the non specific. I assume you want to be a intelligence officer like james bond. Well this needs no specific degree. But you do need to have some good qualities and have to be fairly intelligent. Also don't kid yourself on that it's anything like the james bond or bourne films cause it's not. Obviously sometimes you'll be expected to do some potentially dangerous stuff. But if you are just looking to be a cool spy with a licence to kill then you are just kidding yourself on. An actual intelligence officer job has more in common with a department of work an pensions (civil servant) fraud investigator than 007. Again look at the sis website for more info. If you really want a job with action, i'd suggest joining the military as an infantary soldier or officer or the police and work your way up to detective.

    That's what they want you to think.

    But nah they have a building right between M15 and M17.

    M26 is easier to get into.
