    The last sentence is the kicker. Very few recent high school or junior college
    graduates will have an active or reinstatable top secret security clearance.
    Evidently they hope to avoid the lengthy and expensive investigation required
    to get a person top secret clearance in the first place.

    Then again, high schoolers or young people are less likely to be
    "tainted."

    I don't think you quite get it, Rich. Top Secret clearance requires an
    investigation of every place you've ever lived and everything you've ever
    done, right back to the moment of your birth. It's a lonnng process, and it
    costs the company or Government agency you work for a lot of money. But if you
    can find someone who has once held TS clearance, the investigation has to go
    back only as far as the time he last held it. That's why they want someone
    with an active or reinstatable clearance. Very few high schoolers fit that
    profile.

    True, but if you have a skill that is badly needed, shortcuts have been
    known to be taken.
