So I'm starting the new job. They want me to get a security clearance. Damn 10 years of my life with people who knew me. I'm only 28 that goes almost back to high school. I don't talk to anyone from back then. Not to mention the bad jobs, unemployment, etc etc. They tell me not to worry, no felonies, or major crimes and you'll be fine. Still has me nervous but all I can do is put the good, the bad, and the ugly in there and hope for the best. Working for a DoD contractor has me thinking twice about this kind of work for the rest of my days. Something can be said for working for MS, Adobe, etc a company with a product. But the money draws does it not. I don't know living in UT I can make the dollars I do in a different style of company. And the benefits are pretty good for a contractor based company.
