I’m currently in my MSIT program and will be graduating next year. I’ll be transition into the IT field from another field. I have searched high and low to learn more about private sector jobs, however, most seem to require security clearance.
I don’t mind a clearance job but I am curious as to what general companies or areas within the USA that I could possibly find no clearance jobs for research purposes.
I know that you can technically find cybersecurity jobs anywhere, but I live in a heavy military/ government contractor area with NASA and Harris etc.
I fell kind of dumb asking this and I swear I have pretty good researching skills, but I am having a difficult time finding these specific roles in the wild.
I have a family and need as much time as possible to plan out which direction I want to go in and make sure I am prepared for the clearance process if that is ultimately the decision I have to go in.
I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share specific companies or states or any other information that would actually point me in the right direction.
Are non clearance jobs unicorns?
