So, you are thinking about a career change huh? Well, let me be the first to tell you to avoid international espionage. Trust me, it is not as glamorous as it seems.
Sure it sounds cool, and it has its moments of danger and excitement, but in the end it leaves you strung out with no friends and living a life of constant compromise.
You spend weeks, months, and years studying your target, and most likely your target has been studying you as well. Finally the time arrives when you will come into close proximity, which of course can be extremely dangerous, but also invaluable for gaining invaluable intel.
