I got my new position during Oct. of 2015.
I received my interim secret quickly.
Until today (01/13/17), I do NOT have my secret clearance....
Colleagues of mine already have a TS! And they started after me. I have also interviewed for three of my friends/colleagues. Yet, none of my friends I listed have been contacted as of today.
I am unable to apply for better jobs that require an active secret so I'm basically stuck in my tracks.
I have been literally affected if you want to blame the hacks for the terrible delay. In short foreign hackers impacted my career as a regular citizen.
My security rep is probably tired of me as I email him monthly for an update. He simply says "still in open status..."
Is there Anyway I could follow up on mine besides bothering my security rep?
