Any tips on getting into a counterterrorism/intel position or contract without SCI/poly? YOE is there, clearance is not.

If you can get a company to sponsor your poly, then get it! You will always have a job.
I have a TS/SCI and it’s still not enough. They always want the poly as well.
Don’t bother getting a Secret. Not worth it.

CT? No, you’ll most likely need SCI/poly.

I’ve seen DHS have a few things at the secret level, but even then, without SCI you’ll mostly being basic LE analysis.

Most people I’ve seen who didn’t come directly from the IC/DoD just got hired into some role that didn’t need a clearance, and then networked onto a project that required one.

For example, I’ve seen folks come to Deloitte on a project that only needed a public trust, expressed interest in moving closer to IC, and then made friends with project leaders/partners in those accounts.

Gonna need that poly tbh so I recommend finding literally any role that’ll sponsor it since they don’t come easy. Adjudication is backlogged like crazy too so it’ll take a minute.

Bit late here, you might be better off scouring clearancejobs. So many smaller companies need butts-in-seats and would be willing to give an SCI/poly- so apply even if it says it required an SCI/poly- the recruiter might hook you up. If you have your TS then you should be able to eventually find a position; though, it will likely not be in analysis/operations and more on the support side until you build a few YOE supporting the IC.
If you don't have a TS, then just apply to any and every job saying "eligible for a government clearance" and whatnot.
