Yes. For those in a defense related industry, where they clearances are required, a poor credit history is likely to result in not getting a job.


When I was working for a military subcontractor, I was told that a bankruptcy was worse than a felony when applying for a security clearance. Not having either in my past, I can't confirm it was or still is true.
