Everyone can be discontented if he ignores his blessings and looks only at his burdens. ~Thomas S. Monson

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Just a comment on the background checks...depending on the level of security clearance you need, they may also have you do a lie detector test. From what i've seen, it's not too common for student-internship jobs, but fairly common for career employment with required clearances. Also, if you're going in for one, make sure the FBI knows about any past international travels. They didn't know about some of mine until the two weeks into the process, and since they have to go back and check international contacts it slowed down my clearance process.
