Re: Security clearance...

Anyone know how to get it? I found some job openings I very well qualify for, but do not have security clearance. How is such a thing achieved for a civilian?

Re: Security clearance...

If the job is open to the public and you don't have clearance, they will do the background check to get it for you.

Pretty sure. The problem is that if it comes down to you and another person that already has the clearance, it saves them time and $$ to hire the other person.

Re: Security clearance...

if it is a simple background investigation you should be up in running in no time, simple credit and felony check. If it is something you need higher, some secret, secret squirrel thing be prepared for about a yr delay...

Re: Security clearance...

Yeah, my cousin's getting out of the military soon, and his clearance is really helping him with jobs. In this shitty IT market he has multiple offers.

I'm pretty sure there are ways you can get yourself a clearance, but it would cost big bucks, and depending on the clearance required, it can take a long time.

Re: Security clearance...

They tell us a it can cost upwards to 100k plus, need the big tickets punched anywhere from 10-30k per ticket depending if they have a baseline already or have to go from scratch...

This is true, it usually takes 6 months to a year. After you get the clearance, you still need to get program access. This can take another week or more. You better not have any drug convictions or have joined any subversive groups. They will even quiz you heavily if you are an NRA member, but it is not a show stopper. Good luck.

Re: Security clearance...

Government security clearances are submitted by the hiring agency so you can't do it yourself. *If you look at the Office of Personnel Management website you can download the PDF version of the SF86 worksheet to give you an idea of what the questions are.
