Security clearance update

Back in March I applied for the security clearance needed for a potential job and I took the required polygraph examination in June. I had thought this meant the clearance review was almost complete but I hadn't heard anything since. However on Wednesday morning I received a call that my clearance had come through which was nice to hear. So in my case, which I would think was pretty straightforward, the clearance process took over 8 months.

In the meantime my potential employer seems to have mislaid my employment application so there remain things to be done. Still it feels like progress.

  1. While my experience is state rather than federal, I went 11 months between initially applying for my current job and actually starting work. And that was without any kind of clearance. Government hiring moves slow.
