Are you a technology professional trying to get a security clearance? If so, the odds are you’ll be playing less of the waiting game than many others.
According to that study, almost half of IT job-seekers clearance investigations were completed within four months.
“While months-long waits may sound and feel like an eternity, especially to an employee given an interim clearance and awaiting additional job responsibilities, the reality is, the timing of the security clearance process has improved markedly since 2005,” according to the study.
The ClearanceJobs.com study found that increased clearance personnel, increased use of digital fingerprinting and legislative guidance, such as the 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevent Act, have helped to speed up the process.
