With unemployment numbers still high globally, I thought that the best ways for people to find work is through government contract jobs and to get a security clearance!
When I got into government contracting and got my security clearance over 20 years ago, it opened up so many doors for me. Ever since then, I’ve never had a problem getting a job and not only that — I’ve never had a problem commanding a high salary. Even during a recession.
But I wanted to do some rigorous analysis to prove to myself and you guys if it’s really true. Does a security clearance guarantee a job? How valuable is it? I just finished a comprehensive analysis of the various government security clearances in four countries:
- United States
- United Kingdom
The results of my findings are as follows as of 11/4/2020 on Indeed:
In the United States,
- 26% of ALL clearance jobs pay $100K or more.
- 24% of the Secret clearance jobs pay $100K or more.
- 38% of the Top Secret clearance jobs pay $100K or more.
- 26% of ALL clearance jobs pay AUD $100K or more.
- 25% of the NV2 clearance jobs pay AUD $100K or more.
- 27% of the PV clearance jobs pay AUD $100K or more.
In the United Kingdom,
- 7% of ALL clearance jobs pay $100K or more.
- 18% of the Security Check clearance jobs pay £70 or more.
