Obtaining Clearance

Post Posted: Aug 02, 05 07:37

I want to get information about obtaining the different clearances (secret, interim secret, etc.) I am guessing this is through the FBI, am I right? How long does it take? Is there a charge? Any info/tips would be appreciated.

Thanks

Clearances are obtained when needed. If you are a contractor for the G, you have to have a sponsoring agency to get you the background investigation and eventually the Clearance. It's not something you just get and keep on your resume.If you have/had a clearance it can help in getting another one - but that's up to the receiving agency.

Also clearances expire meaning regular expense if you want them indefinitely. Some of the higher clearances expire within a year.

Either call the agencies that you might be interested in, or browse the OPM site where G jobs are listed. They do have a section for Internship/Co-Op positions.

Thanks everyone.

Any ideas for private sector jobs? I am wondering what job titles to search for as well as job sites.

The DSS also does investigations for clearances if you are in the Department of Defense. Lots of forensics work in DoD.
