    Well that would be for the NSA, it will be different based upon who you work for and where you work. I know the Navy does not allow me to list me clearance level.

    It might differ from command to command but based on this document with examples from Sea Systems Command, it's not a Navy-wide prohibition: http://www.navsea.navy.mil/Portals/1...%20Samples.pdf

    So you are correct, in my case it is command specific, I just confirmed this with my ISSM.

    Also, I love the person who keeps coming up with these ridiculous negative rep comments. They always give me a good laugh.

    I remember distinctly in my transition class out of the Army over 20 years ago, we were told not only were we permitted to put our clearance on our resume, it was recommended we did when we applied for government or government contract jobs. Granted that was a long time ago and policies change quite often, but nothing I've heard so far suggests that has changed nor has ever once have I been chewed out for putting my clearance on my resume.

    Now, what you don't do is go around telling people you have a clearance, especially while outside the United States, and you don't discuss your job if you are on a government contract that requires a clearance. When anyone asks me, I just tell them "IT Manager".

    LOL it ain't me negging you. I save my reps to help those who provide useful information, not to tear down others.

    The apnea isn't as big a deal as it once was. You will need a medical waiver. To get one you will probably be asked for a copy of you last sleep study and the log files from the CPAP device proving regular use. They don't want you expiring from not using the CPAP as prescribed. Just ask your doctor for a copy of the study and the CPAP will either allow you to copy the report to a thumbdrive or a retrieve a code to produce a report depending on the manufacturer.


    I don't know the criteria they use for Afghanistan vs. other vacation destinations, so I can't say.


    Good luck

    Thanks for this LittleBIT,

    Wanted to know if there is any flexibility regarding the clearance? I have my interim clearance and currently on the Vectrus "ready to deploy" list.

    Got my offer letter today. Any FEIE experts want to holler at me? This offer is only good for me if I don't have to pay taxes on it.

    Not an expert by any means, but essentially there's the physical presence test ( 330 days NOT in the US) and the bona fide residence test (basically as long as you don't stay in the US for long periods of time)

    The FEIE starts on day 1 of working with company, so say you were to start tomorrow, you aren't paying the 30-40% of federal taxes.
    However, you still pay Social Security/Medicare and you're responsible for taxes above the 102k or so threshold.

    it's pretty straightforward. if you plan to stay a year, you're good. or i guess 330 days out of the us more specifically. and you choose the 'physical presence' option regarding why you will be exempt

    that was my offer as well. was hemming and hawing over it for a while, when a better opportunity in qatar fell in my lap.

    i did hear that some new, potentially higher paying positions were coming to swacc though, so i'll be keeping my eyes on that.

    Those aren't Vectrus requirements, those are ARCENT requirements.
