SF 86 Secret Clearance Employment History

Mid 2005 to mid 2007 was a transitional time for me. I didn’t have a steady job, just odd jobs paying mostly cash and was out of work for a significant time and was otherwise supported by my savings, parents, and girlfriend. I’m concerned that this period of flux is going to cause me some trouble with getting my Secret Clearance. My place of residence was always consistent throughout this time. I have documented job history before and after this period too.

Do I have cause for concern?

What is the concern? You paid your bills assisted by family and friends. You will be questioned as to what you were doing during that time to occupy your time. Doesn’t sound like you need to be concerned.

When you put it like that, I guess I don’t have much cause for concern, other than my personality trait of often thinking the worst of things.
