US Air Force Chief, ISR & Cyber Transformation at the Pentagon, Col. Jason Kulchar, joins ClearanceJobs to highlight a new platform they’ve launched. The Cyber Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission area is relatively new to the intelligence community, first appearing in the early 2000s. It is therefore not a new intelligence discipline – for example , there is no new CYBINT – but rather we have Cyber ISR, all-source intelligence that encompasses and merges traditional cyberspace intelligence disciplines.
No matter what intelligence role you work in, mentoring is essential whether you are just entering the field or looking to revamp your career. Col. Kulchar leads Air Force Intelligence’s efforts for mentorship, diversity and industry engagement. Last year, Col. Kulchar and his team launched a beta test for a new mentoring platform that matches Air Force intelligence professionals with personalized mentors for career guidance. We dive into all the details of the program where they have had significant success and have conducted extensive research into mentoring best practices.
Col Jason Kulchar, works directly for Maj Gen Mary O’Brien and has seen a great need for one-on-one mentorship. Air Force Intelligence’s efforts in mentorship, diversity, and industry engagement have become a huge priority for the organization. This kicked off the launch of a beta test for a new mentoring platform and they received amazing feedback from the many users using its features.
