How do companies find people to do their dirty work?

So I hear big companies bribe people all the time, like politicians, other company execs, doctors, or whatever.

How does such a company recruit employees to do this task and then also make sure they shut up about it? It’s not like I can find these postings on LinkedIn or something. Would a job posting be like, “Hello, we are looking for a professional briber to make it easy for us to do business in Laos” or something? How do the interviews go? How does the company know such a candidate is cool? How do they keep candidates from reporting them to the authorities?

I don’t think companies have to find them, the shady folks naturally get promoted into these positions. Like you’re not getting to the executive level without a minimum level of shade.

I’ve wondered about this. Perfect example is the character Hall in Billions. How do you get that job? And where do you get the experience before you get that job?

I kind of just assume that any US company that does business in Asia has bribed someone

There are probably extremely special search firms to get matches.
