You Can Get a Clearance Faster – But Do You Want To? Making the Case for National Security Careers

What is the state of the security clearance process today, as Trusted Workforce 2.0 reforms are implemented and the cleared workforce adjusts to a ‘post’ COVID working environment? ClearanceJobs sat down with Lisa Reidy, Vice President of Security at GDIT, to discuss the status of personnel security today. Reidy discussed significant improvements in security clearance timelines and how GDIT is seeing success in attracting the next generation to pursue national security careers.

In the second half of the program, security clearance attorney Sean Bigley and ClearanceJobs’ Lindy Kyzer discuss the latest weird trend born out of changing marijuana norms while federal laws remain on the books – and that’s the marijuana pre-nup. If you work in a national security career and find yourself falling in love with someone with different views on drugs – a marijuana might save your relationship and your career.
