Pardon me if this question has been asked before but I am trying to see If someone has an idea for how long does it really take for contractors for their Secret Clearance. I have been given Favorable CFD (Contractors Fitness Determination) after I had my interview with Investigator. I was told that after I get my CFD I would be able to deploy but since there are not jobs available for my language I was told to wait for position to be available or in case if i get my final Secret Clearance.
I Submitted my E-Qip on 7th Dec 2017 and 6 of my references had been checked out, School, College and University references as well as my employment verification. On 2nd January 2018 I had my interview and everything checked out and I did good on my interview after interview 2 days later my FSO emailed me and told me that I have been given a favorable CFD and I am able to deploy but before I deploy I have to wait for the my position to be available or If I get my final Secret Clearance. So how long does it take for final Secret Clearance.
