About 3 months ago I was in the military and working at NSA with a TS/SCI clearance (with a CI poly). I have since separated from the military after receiving multiple contingent offers of employment. I separated based on the fact that so many companies were offering me jobs that there was no way in my mind I would not be able to find work.
The initial company’s position fell through due to budgeting however my security processing continued. I have since sat for 2 polygraphs and I have been unsuccessful both times. As far as my background I have tried weed once in high school and been contacted by the police not charged but had to speak with a judge and write a letter (all disclosed on sf86 before the military). I honestly think that I’m not able to pass because I’m terrified that I’m telling the truth but some how I’m not passing. My question is what should I do? I have read the lies behind the polygraph book but I really don’t want to try counter measures and lose the clearance that I have when I know I’m not lieing about anything. I’ve seen on here people asking about congressmen, would that help at all.
Another thing that is stressful is the fact that most military guys get CCAs and are allowed to start working while they are getting the polygraph done. For some reason I was not allowed to do that. I do have foreign family but they are all from a friendly part of the world and naturalized. HELP!!!??
