What are security clearances worth to Pennsylvania residents?

When competition for certain job positions gets fierce, any advantage a Pennsylvania resident has could make the difference between getting the job and not getting it. An active security clearance could provide a significant advantage when it comes to having a leg up in the hiring process. Moreover, people with security clearances could potentially find higher paying positions as well.

Another issue facing Pennsylvania security clearance holders is not losing the designation. Any number of issues could lead to potentially losing a clearance, which in some arenas might as well be considered a firing. It is possible that the agency or federal contractor for which an individual works would find another position for him or her after losing the privilege of working with classified material, but that is not always the case.

There also tends to be a salary bump in the civilian world for someone who has a clearance. Someone with an active security clearance passes criminal, financial and personal background checks. He or she tends to be viewed as trustworthy and upstanding since the government obviously gave its stamp of approval. In addition, considering the current backlog, already having a clearance makes an individual a valuable commodity.

With all of the changes going on regarding how people obtain and retain security clearances, their value appears to be increasing. This makes ensuring the ability to obtain and retain one even more crucial, not only for a current position, but for a future one as well. When faced with the possibility of not getting one or losing one, an individual may want to seriously consider appealing any adverse decision or otherwise taking any steps available to rectify the situation as quickly as possible.
