If you like it, please provide a review and recommend it to your friends.
What I've learned after over two decades in the field is that fear and misunderstandings stop people from making good career decisions such as applying for security clearance jobs.
Just like any career goal or dream, you can probably list a few reasons why you should give up before you even try. Here are a few common misconceptions that you should understand. Don't let these stop you:
  • I have a bad past; so they won't give me a clearance.
  • Everyone will see my personal secrets
  • Security clearances cost a lot of money
  • It takes years to get a security clearance
  • Security clearances are too competitive; they'll never give me one
  • I have to have a security clearance before I can bid on a classified contract or apply for a job
