  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Security Clearance (SC) Q&A Read first before asking questions

    Please find below an accumulation of questions that have featured on some of the many reptitive questions about SC. Maybe by putting them in a stickie and adding when we get new ones we can bat some of the drudgery off. I have given canned answers from what I read on the forum but you know how...

  6. Investing company money

My thoughts are that contract length is more about them keeping hold of you. It's beneficial to me to keep the contract as short as...
