A security clearance is often essential to landing a job with government contractors or federal agencies who handle sensitive information. Since the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and a huge demand for internet security work, there has never been a greater demand for employees to work on classified programs. Therefore, qualified job seekers will find that they have a tremendous advantage over non-cleared candidates; they will benefit by receiving a salary premium.
Security clearances are special statuses assigned to people as a method of trusting them access to sensitive, classified, and confidential information.
Receiving a United States Security Clearance requires applicants to clear a formal vetting procedure; are you ready to gain your security clearance, and enter the highest tier of government job searchers? Or, if you already have clearance from a previous job or military position, do you know how you can ensure that you retain your clearance? We will walk you through the entire process from start to finish.
