What job is best for a security clearance, and is military reserve?
I am currently working full time in the career field I want to persue (IT). I work in the DC area and want a security clearance (more pay, and easier to get a job). I have also wanted to join the military since I was young, but never ended up going. I figured I'd join a reserve branch, that has something to do with my career goal (Network Security).
