Navigating TS Clearance Process with Current Employer

Hi all,

I recently got a tentative job offer from the State Dept that requires a TS clearance. I currently work for a large contractor and feel it would get very awkward (especially my boss) if/when they find out about the job if I accepted it and initiated the investigation process. Could someone detail their experience with this process and is it common to list a co-worker instead of a supervisor for reference when it comes to listing employment history?

You can list a coworker, but the investigator may still try to contact your supervisor.
