I don't know about their websites, but Bradley Morris and the Lucas group are both pretty good companies.   They're both great at finding work for ex-military types.

I've been to job conferences hosted by both, and I'll be starting my new job at Otis Elevator on Monday thanks to Bradley Morris.

I can't believe you fellas have missed the greatest site of all. My first job (General Dynamics) out of the army found me via monster.

www.monster.com

Seriously, your resume needs to be on there NLT 90 days prior to ETS, especially if you are planning on getting a job with your security clearance. If you think you've done anything that someone would find interesting, it should probably be on your resume.

Have someone look over your resume! In fact, have several people look over your resume. There really is no standard format because everyone likes something different. But they might just catch that grammatical error that would've made you look like an ass.

A few hints for cleared personnel:
Get a copy of your SF86
Know who did your clearance (DoD, USAF, DIA, etc.)
Know the date your clearance was approved
Know the date your poly was approved

Not exactly. Lots of people still look at me with the deer-in-the-headlights look when I mention monster.com. They have recently added a new field for government security clearances that employers can enter into their search criteria.

While I'm at it, I wanted to plug one more website.
www.intelligencecareers.com

Don't be fooled by the name, though they primarily recruit for intel jobs. They have a wide variety of positions for cleared personnel.

Happy Hunting!

BTT. I wish I would have found this thread back in July when I dropped paperwork. I'm a recently retired vet looking for a job.  The problem I'm having is I want to stay local, but am willing to go overseas (ie., Afghanistan or Asia).

Thanks for the links. Here's one if your interested in working as a civilian for the Air Force. Anyone need any help with this let me know.

Air Force Civilian Employment

It's The Air Force Personnel Center, Civilian Employment section.

Anyone out there prior Air Force in the aircraft maintenance career fields, I've got some more links. If your an ex Armament Systems Specialist (AKA - Weapons Troop) then I've got two sites up your alley too.

Question for anyone that may be able to answer. I had a Secret security clearance when I retired. Does anyone know how long that will be good for after retiring? I don't suspect it will be good much longer afterwards, but I've seen a few jobs that are looking for people with a security clearance. I'm guessing that it wouldn't take much for a company to re-open one that was closed recently.

Clearances are based on the date and type of investigation that was conducted.  Typically there is some central facility(For the Navy, its called DONCAF) that maintains a record of the investigation and when you check in to a new command, they can reference that investigation and grant the appropriate clearance.  If it has not been that long ago (the types of investigations expire after given periods) perhaps your old command can tell you the specifics on your last investigation and you can use that information to get a new clearance with an employer.

the general rule is finding employment that is willing to sponsor your clearance within 2 years of being debriefed from your last job that required it. They need to get the process started within 2 years or it's in a sense dead.

Your Military clearence is good for 24 months AFTER you leave the service, not from the last time you held a job that required it.

Once you are hired and you have a civilian clearance your military clearance drops dead and the civilian company "owns" your clearance.

Thanks everyone for the information on the security clearance. Before leaving New Mexico I talked to the guy that was our Squadrons Security Manager...he told me that because of the job I had, my clearance was in the process of being upgraded when I retired. He said since the air force already invested the money and the investigation was already started, it would still go through and get upgraded...regardless of the fact that I have retired.

but it is basically the same....you dont have to do anything ...it just carries over.  the only time you'd have to do anything would be if you had to upgrade your clearance from say a secret to a TS...THEN there would have to be another investigation done...otherwise...you notice no change.  as long as the clearance is being used, it does not expire.

Hey, fellas.  I'm not a vet, but would like to start off my post by collectively thanking y'all for your service.

Here are three that [obviously] don't hire vets exclusively, but should be on any vets job-hunting radar:

1) Essentially the "clearinghouse" for all federal jobs (though they're still not at 100% yet):
www.usajobs.opm.gov/

2) Army's civvy hiring wing:
cpol.army.mil/index.html

3) Navy's same:
chart.donhr.navy.mil/

There are other sites for CIA, NASA, etc, etc, etc - but (always depending on your interests, MOS, and any other skills, of course) these three should offer you the most bang for your buck*.

Best,

Jake.


* i.e. They are all "free," but time is money and it takes at least a nominal amt of time to sign up and/or register at any job site.

P.S. Always use both the appropriate schedule and any associated locality adjustments when calculating salary, but you folks already know that!  Here's a helpful link for that: www.opm.gov/oca/05tables/index.asp

P.P.S. Hey, Styk.  Sorry to have missed you and Tex this past weekend, but it was something of a suicide trip.  Those beer and wings sounded mighty tempting, but the new "head of household" was awfully cranky.  Her schedule was thrown off by all the travelling and she hadn't slept or napped well in over three days at that point.  FWIW, Joe's dad, Fred, does helo work at CCAD, but I have no idea what he makes.  Either IM me or get my email add from Tex and I'll get you his contact info if you just want someone to shoot the shit w/ during "downtime" or before work.

Useful for keeping a thread near the top of the heap, since threads posted or replied to more recently move up to the top spot(s), forcing the rest of the pack down.

There is technically no reason to "BTT" an already-tacked thread (as it's *already* at the top of its respective forum), but as 82ndAbn noted in a different thread about a week or so ago, it *does* help keep it alive in the "Active Topics" section.

Best,
