I had a security clearance from my aerospace engineering career in the 80s & 90s that had long elapsed. But just having had a clearance, I got a gig in the 00s doing some Visual C++ work for some type of "situational awareness" application, and I think what made me stand out was that I had had a clearance, so it was a bit easier to get a temporary clearance (I can't remember the term, but it was like a quickie that was all that I needed to get to work behind the "safe" door).

This situation has arisen because employers don't want to invest anything in their employees, and would rather just buy skills, or in this case, a clearance, off the shelf. If I were still in the business, you can bet your sweet bippy that I would jump around to chase the dead Presidents. Oh, and H1Bs can't get this clearance; they can't even work in a NOFORN office.

The only problem with a clearance is that if you travel abroad a lot, it looks suspicious.
