The news of layoffs is everywhere. That can make even the most confident candidates a little uneasy. But the blessing and the curse of working in the defense industry is that jobs are typically driven by contracts. While budget changes can be slow to increase or adjust, the Pentagon is fairly reliable in spending on the many defense programs. It may mean adjusting employers at times, depending on who wins a contract, but for years, consistent work has almost been guaranteed for clearance holders.
