Is a TS Clearance worth it if you are trying to exit to FAANG or a tech company? Everyone I spoke to oversold the value of the TS in terms of job security and options but all I'm getting are calls from recruiters who work for other federal contractors.

For context, 15 years of total experience with the last 5 years focused on cloud migration assessments and digital modernization.

MAG have massive projects with IC agencies. If you plan on staying in the area, definitely recommend

Some of them give you a nice bonus for just having a TS.

TS requirement would be within presales, account management, customer success, business development and solution architect positions mostly. Basically any sales or sales support functions.

If you want to sell to the government, then yes, it is worth it. There are FAANG positions (gov cloud is an example) where they want/need people with clearances.

Thanks A1, I sort of knew that. I'm just saying they don't have a whole lot of positions listed stating they need cleared professionals

Hiring managers: let’s say you are interviewing someone with a lot of relevant experience, but may not be totally on point. What’s going to sell you on that person? This is truly a vague question, but are you looking for honesty about what they have vs haven’t done? Can you tell when someone is trying to spin it? (Feel free to also include anything that turns the candidate to a hard no.)

I’m interviewing for a start up and the role sounds interesting. Usually for the “test” part of the interview I’ve had to analyze data.

Is this a lot for an interview?

sanity checking an offer from Booz Allen - I have a quant PhD + 5 relevant YOE, secret clearance in hand, and the exact skill set they are hiring for on the team (title is Sr data scientist, associate lvl, SIG). I told the recruiter that I was expecting $170k+, and their offer came in at $150k. My market rsch of peers in the industry indicates $180+ wouldn’t be unreasonable. They said is $155k is best and final, but this is slightly less than current comp at an FFRDC. Just how BAH rolls?
