About This Quiz

First and foremost, thank you for your service! Your commitment to your country is appreciated. We are also betting that your time in the service could lead to a magnificent career in the United States Government. Tell us all about your job in the military, and we'll figure out if you should go Secret Service or if you should jump on board the Department of Homeland Security. 

While we relive your days in the military, we will need to asses the skills you learned and the way you approached the challenges you were handed. We will want to know how many times you've been overseas and about the kind of worker your superiors would have considered you. Once we get a good picture of the way you conducted yourself throughout your military career, we'll be able to place you in a government agency that would use your skills the best. 

Let's go back to your days in the service, and learn every detail of the job you performed. Your responses to our questions will tell us if you can apply for top-level security clearance or if you'll need to apply for a less stringent agency. Are you ready to find out?
