ClearanceJobs serves individuals with active federal security clearances and provides a secure forum for employers to recruit cleared employees. It is the largest career site focused exclusively on candidates with active or current U.S. government security clearances.



ClearanceJobs was founded in July 2002 by Evan and Rachel Lesser. While they had the idea as early as the late 1990s while living and working in Northern Virginia, they didn't launch the site until 2002, after they moved to Atlanta and were spurred on by the need for qualified cleared talent following 9/11.

On September 16, 2004, ClearanceJobs was acquired by DHI Group, Inc.

In June 2010 ClearanceJobs launched the Cleared Network - the only vetted, password protected career networking platform designed exclusively for security-cleared professionals.
