Agencies and contractors often find themelves in need of job candidates with security clearances, but matching up needs and suitable applicants can be difficult. And some security clearances bar their holders from posting public profiles at all on social-networking sites such as Facebook.

ClearanceJobs.com, an online resource for employees with active federal security clearances, today unveiled The Cleared Network. It's a private online community that combines a specialized job board with the other benefits of social networking. The Cleared Network is accessible only to registered members with clearances, but a video demonstrating the site's features is available here.
