I am an IT Network engineer and would like to work federal related engineering position in South Korea.
The requirement for clearance level is Top Secret.
My goal: I would like to get position in Korea which require US Citizenship and clearance.
Current Situation: I am US Citizen with no clearance and I am naturalized( was not born in US but grew up Korea and still have family and my son (2 yrs old) and my wife are still dual citizen. I don't have any business, money in Korea but my son received monthly benefit ($150) from Korean government (this benefit is for all Korean children who is under 5)
Question: 1 - Should my family give up Korean citizenship for my clearance?
Question 2: Is it hard to work and get Top secret if I was grow up in Korea and the position is in Korea too? Or it really doesn't matter?
If there is possibility that I can get the job in Korea, I will apply a few IT company that handle Federal related IT work and has position in Korea.
Thank you so much!!
