Re: Out of their ever lovin minds!
But the current system is perfect.
Candidate 1 - no knowledge of the system, field, language or any noticable skills - but has clearance. Has sat in the same job for 20years having clearance automatically renewed.
Candidate 2 - has skills but no clearance. Hire them and have them sit in the breakroom for 9 months while waiting for clearance.
Guess who gets hired. Now guess how good government IT systems are.
