May 4, 2012 -- This week on Fed Access, Evan Lesser, founder and director of ClearanceJobs.com joins host Derrick Dortch to talk about the results of the organization's 2012 compensation survey.

For the past six years, ClearanceJobs.com has surveyed security-cleared professionals to get their thoughts on salaries, benefits, extra compensation, relocation, and the state of the job market.

This year 15 thousand workers participated in the survey.

On today's show, Lesser talks about who they surveyed, how they gathered and analyzed the information, and what were the most surprising findings.

The results are often used by contractors, government agencies, universities, and national labs that hire workers with security clearances.
