Live in DC Area, Have a Clearance & Wondering if You’re Underpaid?

ClearanceJobsI’m a bit burned out on infographics these days but periodically I come across an interesting one. As an example, recently posted their graphic of “Cleared Cybersecurity Salary in DC.” Based on a survey that ended in January of this year, the infographic depicts pay for individuals at various clearance levels and positions in the metro DC area. Some of the points that stuck out to me included most taking home an average salary of $110K and those with IC clearances or in management topping out at around $135K.

    Renthal: Thanks for your comment! I’d say that’s probably on par depending on your clearance level… Beyond us all obviously wanting to make more, do you think this is a fair compensation?
