Consulting Exit Opportunities

I accepted a SC position at BAH almost two weeks ago. They said my hiring process is frozen until I get clearance. Any idea on how long this may take? Would appreciate any insight. Thanks

What level of clearance? TS/SCI could easily be two years Public trust could be two weeks

I think 2 months would be on the low end

Is this a security clearance or a background check? I would imagine BAH wild lose a lot of talented hires if they left them in limbo for 2-6 months for a clearance A firm like BAH could assess the likelihood that you would get your security clearance before bringing you onboard. I would clarify the type of clearance and timeframe with HR

My point was thatHR could be using security clearance and background check interchangeably and to confirm timeline with them

Getting a TS can take in excess of 6 months

It really depends on your history, I waited 3.5 years for TS w/Poly and ended up self-selecting to end the process because it was taking too long. Currently in the process for secret and have been for a year. I have a lot of foreign relatives and travel a relatively often.

The unfortunate part is that there’s no way to really push it to go faster. Or at least not in my experience.

Do you think considering someone your best friend requires that they also consider you as their best friend?
