If you held out through 2022’s continuation of the pandemic-born “Great Resignation,” a career move might be one of your New Year’s resolutions. Cleared candidates have a wide range of options, but we found three cleared jobs you’ll want to check out in 2023.


We spend an increasing amount of time online. Thanks to the internet, job functions, social interactions, medical records, bank accounts, and more are all digitally stored. With so much personal information living online, cybersecurity has become one of the most in-demand professions in the country. Cybersecurity analysts are experts in their field, combating cyberattacks and understanding the attackers’ behavior. Salaries reflect their skills, with an average salary of $114,018 for cleared candidates.


Last year was a big one for aerospace. The U.S. Air Force unveiled Northrup Grumman’s new B-21 Raider, and the Space Force gained unprecedented responsibility when it assumed ownership of all American military communications satellites. And the quest for the final frontier won’t be slowing down anytime soon, so the aerospace industry needs dedicated individuals to keep the wheel of progress turning. 

Cleared Aerospace Project managers oversee all aspects of the country’s most secret projects — supervising engineering and design, managing communications, budgeting, and schedules. Management-level cleared candidates in the aerospace industry can make upwards of $143,900.


Big data looms large on our future’s horizon, and data scientists are at its core, turning raw data into valuable and tangible information. Artificial intelligence and machine learning wouldn’t be possible without data scientists, and their skills will continue to shape how we interact with and progress via technology. The Data Science sector was one of the top highest-paying job categories in 2022, with the average compensation for cleared candidates coming in at $119,759. 

Cleared candidates should feel empowered entering this new year, with nearly every industry looking for the right fit. Stay up to date on the latest openings by visiting our site.
