I know this has been discussed a lot here so please forgive me for asking. But I just got an offer as a computer scientist for a government job that requires secret clearance. One problem, I have a 13 year old felony (I was a dumb 18 year old). The charge was burglary, no prison time, just probation and community service. Clean record since, got expunged, got certificate of rehabilitation from state, got bachelors degree.
I just finished my EQIP and submitted after I accepted the job offer.
Anybody have any experience with a situation like this? I’m so thrilled to get this job offer and am terribly worried I got my hopes up for nothing because of my past mistake. Do you think I will get interim and eventual secret clearance? I’ve been reading a lot of mixed info on the internet but this forum seems to have knowledgeable people on it.
Any experience/advice will be greatly appreciated.
