Question:

Should expired security clearances be listed on resumes?

Answer: If you are applying for a position with a defense industry or government employer: Yes.

Having had a previous security clearance and successful background investigation indicates that you should be able to do it again.

Listing a clearance also indicates the level of trust placed with you. If you made it through the process once then you can probably do it again!

My recommendation is that you list your clearance at the top of your resume, just as if it were active.

EXAMPLE:

Security Clearance: Secret (2004-2018) … or … Top Secret SCI (2004-2018, last PR 2017).
