I passed my Secret Interim clearance, clearing the way to start working at this job, but not to get onto the military base to view the classified info yet. I would be able to work there, contingent on passing the rest of the clearance. How long does the rest of the Secret clearance take, generally speaking, and what do they look at that wasn’t looked at in the Interim? I’m in IT, btw. And has anyone ever taken a job after passing their Secret Interim only to fail something in the rest of it and lose their job?
Base access is separate from the clearance. Likely the company needs submit you for base access, get a VCIN check, and then you will be issued a Cac card. That will take all day, btw.
Ah - I didn’t know that. Good to know.
