And in this day and age, I've only seen requests for "already has". It
is not possible to get a clearance on your own. The employer has to
request it, and it takes money and time--three to six months when I had
one years ago. Possibly a lot longer now.

I'm clearable, but don't have one. Doesn't stop agencies from wanting to
put me in for jobs that need one. What are they thinking? Oh, $19/hr,
that's what they're thinking.

IIRC, some members of Clinton's administration had problems getting
needed clearances because of past associations.
