That raises another point. During my last round of job-hunting, it seemed
like about half of the positions out there were defense industry jobs that
required applicants to already hold a Secret or higher clearance. How
does a civilian who doesn't already have such a clearance receive one,
outside of taking an entry-level military or intelligence position and
working up? Or is this pretty much a closed system?
