I recently got denied a security clearance as a contractor for the CIA. My wife and I are devastated but are waiting on the SOR to appeal this.
However, I am pretty concerned on several issues. I was recently hired directly for the CIA and had sent in a new SF-86 several months ago before I was given notice of my clearance denial. Can someone provide me on guidance on how to move forward with this? It is important for me to be honest with my Security Officer. At the same time, I had just been working on this hire for several years and I would hate to just throw it away; do I have a chance at all?
In addition, I am also in the final stages for a Special Agent position with the FBI. Should I notify them about this denial as well and hold off my application? Or should I just continue this application as well.
Thank you for your insight everyone.
