Hello, I just had one quick question that I haven't been able to find an answer to. I was wondering, if I was to get a Top Secret clearance/TS-SCI while doing Intel for the Marine Reserves, would I be able to get a civilian job from a defense company or somewhere along those lines. Thanks in advance.

Most likely not. Having the security clearance is nice, but unless you have deployments and years of active experience and/or a degree, contractors won't look at you. The field is already ripe with experienced dudes because of the drawdown, I'm getting out for a contractor job only because I got disgruntled with the mil after recruiting duty. I imagine there are other intel Marines that got put on other "keep it real" lifer duties and are probably looking to get out as well. Not being a pessimist, just saying how it is now.
