From Naturalized Citizen to U.S. Government Employee

While obtaining a federal security clearance requires citizenship, and becoming a U.S. citizen is the clear path for individuals who come to America and seek to pursue a government career, path to citizenship doesn't affect one's ability to pursue giving back through federal service or a national security career. And for some individuals, in fact, having moved to the U.S. from abroad only increases their desire to give back through their career path.
