The clearance is killing me. The two generalists didn't have a
clearance and the cleared applicants are programmers or admins but
never both.

I just about spewed my chai tea seeing 'SCI' and 'generalist' in the same post... isn't that mutually exclusive?

There's a difference between the TS/SCI clearance - and SCI
compartmentalization security model for secure projects or information
- and whether you need a generalist programmer / network programmer to
solve the problem within the compartment or a specialist.

One can have very generalist problems within a very narrowly defined
security compartment.

One of my main hobbies, if done as a day job, would require TS/SCI
clearance plus an additional level; it requires about 8 or 9 major
scientific and engineering disciplines to master.
