Hola, I agree that the government has many positions that are great! The problem I have encountered is that many of those positions require a secret clearance at some level. The average citizen probably does not have a clearance!
Question. How do we get that secret clearence? that everybody talk about. any advice?
A Secret Clearance is easy to get. Unfortunately, you must be in a job that requires a clearance or have accepted a tentative offer that requires a clearance. When you accept the position and do not have a clearance, they will start a background check on you. You must be a US Citizen and complete the required documentation. Whether its a hard copy of an SF86 (you can google the form) of an online version of it like Eqip. The first thing that will happen is they will check your criminal background and then your credit. A Secret clearance usually takes about 60 to 90 days to complete. Some of the reasons that the clearance may be delayed in being adjudicated are if you claim dual citizen status or if they find out that someone did not tell the truth on the paperwork they submitted.
