An introduction to security clearances.

Are you at this time considering a job in the Federal field or, perhaps, looking for a career in the military? If so, you will need to get familiarized with how security clearances work. Without being approved for a security clearance, you might not be allowed to perform certain tasks or you could be declined for a specific job (so it’s important to include it in your Federal resume and/or SES resume). As such, a clear knowledge of what security clearances are is well worth exploring.

What exactly does a security clearance entail? Basically, this is a provision given to those that work in government or are contracted to work with a government agency. Essentially, this provision will state that certain classified information will be provided to the person with an appropriate level of clearance. Moreover, limitations in terms of the specific government facilities the person might visit will be removed. Essentially, the individual with the proper clearance will be allowed to operate in an unlimited manner when handling certain duties for his/her job.

How can you achieve a specific level of security clearance? A background check will be executed which will explore different facets of the person’s personal, professional, financial, and even political life. By doing this, security levels can be maintained and those who might pose a security risk will be kept from achieving a security rank they should not be getting.

You might wonder why security clearance is needed. This will depend upon the tasks at hand. In some cases, the documents that the person comes in contact with could contain sensitive data of a personal nature about some personalities. By requiring a security clearance, such private data will be efficiently protected.

Then, there will also be issues of a national security related situation. In some government and military tasks, highly classified security information must be protected from being released to those that would leak or compromise the information. By getting a security clearance, such information does not fall into the wrong hands.
