For employment activity, I put down “non-government employment” for my current company (who is sponsoring me for this clearance) when I should have put down “federal contractor”. I sent an email to the security dept at my work, asking if that could be changed, but I’m worried I screwed up. How badly could this mistake affect my job or clearance?

    0.00000% will it impact your clearance. When you have your interview, just explain right away you were a little confused and made a mistake filling out the form.

    Of all the “big deals” that could impact your clearance, this one isn’t even a small blip on the radar.

    Google “DOHA Appeal Board Decisions” for a taste of what people get denied a clearance for. There is some really entertaining reads in there.
