Can new job "pull over clearance" before you give notice?

I am accepting a new job offer here that will be using my TS. The new place recruiter told me “don’t give your two weeks notice until we have your clearance pulled over”. Can they take control of my clearance in JPAS or what have you before my old job “releases” me? Both jobs are DoD. Thanks

IIRC, anyone can take “possession” of your clearance, so to speak. I don’t know if you need to wait for them to do so before giving notice, though.

They are doing you a favor and telling you not to resign until they know that they will not have a problem getting your clearance. They don’t want you to quit and then not be able to start your new job right away.
