Interviews and topics centering on security clearances and protecting classified information according to the National Industrial Security Clearance Operating Manual (NISPOM).Did you know that employees with security clearances make up to 15% more than their counterparts? But many people don't apply for security clearance jobs because they are worried about their past and others don't apply because they don't understand the process.Insider's Guide to Security Clearances answers your questions and walks the reader through the process.It's like having a security clearance roadmap and a private guide.What I've learned after over two decades in the field is that fear and misunderstandings stop people from making good career decisions such as applying for security clearance jobs. Just like any career goal or dream, you can probably list a few reasons why you should give up before you even try. Here are a few common misconceptions:I have a bad past; so they won't give me a clearance. Everyone will see my personal secretsSecurity clearances cost a lot of moneyIt takes years to get a security clearanceSecurity clearances are too competitive; they'll never give me oneNone of these are true. Insider's Guide to Security Clearance gives you the real information and solutions you need to go after that security clearance job.Inside you'll find answers to your security clearance questions and information you can use immediately. My name is Jeff Bennett and I've been working with a security clearance for decades. I understand the system well and want to share with you my knowledge.
