I wish. For the past three months I've been trying to find a network
engineer with a deep TCP/IP protocol understanding, network security
expertise, some Linux experience, minor programming skill with sockets
and a TS/SCI clearance.


Is clearance the problem, or the ability to obtain clearance due to
something in their background?  If your work requires it, you should have
some recourse for applicants to obtain the required clearance, no?

My understanding is that while primary and subcontractor companies can
put people in the sponsoring organization's clearance granting queue,
it takes so long to get someone through the queue that for high-level
positions they essentially make having the clearance already a
prerequisite.
