Hi everyone, I am new here. I have a question: I was granted a secret interim clearance for a position I was overqualified for. My recruiter recommended upgrading me to TS. I agreed with that since that comes with higher clearance and better pay. He said that will request a polygraph test. I have been waiting for two months. After talking to the recruiter after two months of waiting, he said the government requires full investigation prior to being able to get you a Polygraph slot. I only had interim clearance. He said that this is a new requirement.
my question is: Can you apply for interim secret clearance to TS with Polygraph? or do you have to have a full clearance before requesting TS polygraph?
