In the great melting pot that is our America, there are many people whose speech is accented and don’t sound like “typical” Americans. As a security clearance holder, you have every right to be cautious about who you talk to regarding your credentials. If you get a phone call from a recruiter or HR representative and they have a non-U.S. accent, you should openly ask them if they are a U.S. citizen and not feel apprehensive about the line of questioning. As you will find, many people you speak to regarding new job opportunities are full, legal U.S. citizens – yet they were born in another country. Even so, don’t hesitate to ask for their credentials and nationality as they will surely ask you.
On ClearanceJobs.com, we require all employers requesting access to our service to be full U.S. citizens. Furthermore, they cannot access the ClearanceJobs.com site from outside the 50 states.
