Can you still get a government job in California for with a misdeameanor? Make long story short about 8 years ago I had an first offense one time incident. I would like to know does anyone know if this would hinder me from getting a security clearance job? I read that in California, background checks go only as far back as 7 years.

Hi there, I am applying for a security clearance for an airport job, should i list a job I had under the table when i was a student or would it be better to not mention it?
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). What branch has these in mind? Security Clearance, Network Security and Reservist. Thanks.
I'd like to clarify (as I already did in the original body), that I also have wanted to join the military on desire alone. Not just for the clearance.
I smoked maybe 5 times in my first semester of college due to a little peer pressure I suppose, but I have no intentions of smoking again. Could I still acquire a top secret security clearance for a military job? I know I'll just be honest about it and hope that all works out well.
