the faster you get into a clearance required position on the outside, the more compressed the waiting time frame will be.  hint, get a copy of your clearance report and burn a copy for the group's security that you will be working for.  most often, they will take that report and stamp your civie paperwork. 
finding something nuclear isn't a whole lot different than finding something genetic, diesel, or astral-based.  it depends on what training and qualifications you bring to the table.

Well the work I do i cant really say at the time but i have no Civilian equiviliant to it. So im only 22 and dont know a lot of people that can help me find a job that can but my celarence to use and i dont want to waste it when i get out of the military.

Years ago, OPM would do clearances for "prospective" employees but 911 changed that. As was previously posted, an employer is now required to have an employment offer before the clearance process begins. Nowadays, an "L" clearance takes about as long to process as a "Q" clearance used to.

i don't use mine anymore, but a contractor that I know did keep mine active after retirement, just in case he needed an escort, derivative classifier or some other part-time function done.
