Hi I am not sure this is right question in this Forum , I am current Fed with less than 3 years (I got my clearance as contractor with IC after I joined a civilan agency ,I rejected few offers to come back as a Contractor to the IC meanwhile I applied directly to an IC in Dec 2017 hoping to make transition to IC full time. I am tired of the civilian agency work and I am contemplating to quit it in Dec 18 to used my current IC clearance (obtained as Contractor) hoping the clearance for the full time as Fed will come thru soon .
Hope I am clear , My timeline is
COE Dec 17
No Poly since I had Poly for the TS /SCI FSP
Medical and Psych in 08/18
Checking with them I get “still actively processing”
is waiting a good option ( the current fed job sucks ) or use the clearance as a contractor and get back to Fed after the clearance is done FYI The current clearance( as a contractor ) and the COE IC are same.
All I am confused is am I taking a risk leaving a current Fed job (no clearance is needed here) with a hope for a return to the IC as Fed Any thoughts?
