Stewart Smith Updated July 15, Do you want a job that requires you to know and share secret government information? If so, you will require a security clearance. A security clearance depending upon the level of secrecy of the information you will work with will require a lie detector, a special background investigation SBI , and criminal and financial background checks. Computer programmers, intelligence analysts, even foreign relations and linguists with the government or contracting companies will require higher level secruity clearances to obtain. Applying for a clearance requires the applicant to be working for a government approved contractor, holding political office, or working with some government entity. For you to even apply, this entity must sponsor you.

Security clearances remain active when there is a demonstrated need for access to classified information. If you left employment or changed positions, your clearance may no longer be active.
