Hi, i got a job contingent on getting secret clearance back in May. My company submitted my paperwork to the OPM May 13th and June 4th I was told my interim was denied, but my company is still going ahead with the investigation. I just recently graduated in May and I live with my parents, so I guess i could afford to wait but I want to move out and make money ASAP, I don’t enjoy being dependent or being a moocher.
Should I move on and try to get a another job? And how long is the process for a security clearance in 2019? there’s a chance my clearance could be denied because of past drug use so if I wait I could end up being screwed, but on the other hand this opportunity is really good and it feels discourteous to my employer. Thanks.
