A 'top secret' job fair in D.C. area (Video)

By Ed O'Keefe

Eric Mendel, sales manager for TechExpoUSA, discusses the demand for people with top secret clearances at the recent TECHEXPO top secret job fair in Reston, Va.

As The Post's Dana Hedgpeth reports today, there's been a major increase in government jobs and contractor positions that require secret clearances since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Everything from janitors at spy agencies to specialized computer technicians and software developers.

Are you one of those seeking a clearance? How difficult has it been? If you have one -- was it easy? Did it help secure a job? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
