Hello all, i am new to the forum and had a question for you. I am currently in the USAF. I am a Tech-Controller. I have a Secret Clearanc and the investigation for my Top-Secret is underway. I have 2ys left and i want to get out. I have no certifications but plan to have my bachelors degree by the time i get out or at least be real close to it. I am currently working in an Infrastructure shop. I install and configure switches routers, bridges..ect. I also do patching and install CAT5 lan drops. All my experience is in LAN Networking. I'm curious to know if i stand a chance in the job market if i get out. I will have approx. 2yrs exp in this field and hopefully an online degree from Grantham University in Information Systems. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

I see lots of jobs in the search engines that require the security clearance.  Most people do not have this, so you are one step ahead of the game on these particular jobs.  Just keep working on experience and I think you will be fine.

they are right.  With those credentials, unless you are too picky, you shouldn't have a problem at all.

Just make sure you get your TS clearance through first.  Just a Secret Clearance doesn't help that much - I know, I have one.  Top Secret will open up MANY more doors to you...In the DC area, you can't even get into the NSA (Ft. Meade)w/o TS+ for the most part.  They have literally hundreds of openings there.

What would one of those puppies cost?  How do you go about finding out?

Search through the forum or Google.
Your employer pays for it and it costs thousands, but you can't apply for one yourself Sad

I got a job offer from the FBI last year, but it was rescinded when I couldn't get my TS clearance.


hahahahaha   The past comes back to haunt me. The older you get, the more they can hold against you.

Well a TS with IT experience in the NoVa/DC area will net you 75K + in the door.  Granted you get free medical, 30 days vacation and free meal and board in the service but you don't always go where you want to either.

On the other hand 20 years and you get a decent retirement check with free medical, something that's not a given in the contracting world. :rolleyes:
