Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who sent their regards in response to yesterday’s post regarding my new job. It’s weird, I am amped about the offer, but I still don’t think the full impact has occured yet. It might not until I am either packing belongings this weekend or actually start work in a week or two (once the drug test comes back).

Goodrich sent me the DSS security clearance application, which looks really long but manageable. I have to iterate all of the places I have lived in the past 10 years, which has me wondering if I am supposed to list my Grace Watson Hall (later NRH) RIT Post Office address or my actual room number in the various buildings… If it’s the latter I am going to have to do some digging to find out what room is which… Any of you spooks reading this encounter this problem when filling out the form?

    I listed all of the above for my FBI background check. Took me about a month to compile everything and you bet I saved a copy in case I ever need it again.

    1. I’m surprised it’s ten years. I thought DSS went down to seven or five.

      I think I might have listed room numbers. I couldn’t remember my post office number to save my life.

  2. I don’t remember what I listed, but I do remember that if they have any questions about what you put down they will most certainly hunt you down and ask them.

  3. I listed dorm rooms and it took a few phone calls to get someone in that building to look at the room numbers. It’s a pain in the ass but it’s a good document to keep on file.
