The company I work for just got into government contracts and is required to increase the security and hire a certified FSO. The current ITAR person is a friend of mine and they pitched to the owners that I should be the FSO (Facility Security Officer) although I do not currently have the required certificate or have had the background check. (I am currently the Quality Coordinator) If it were my company, I would want someone with experience for this position as they would be covering 6 plants. I am sure she has my best interest in mind but the question I am struggling with is how boring would this job be? I love Quality because I can do projects and save tons of money - the problem solving avenue is rewarding to me. However, more money and vac time are included with this new position if offered to me. Has anyone done both jobs or know anything about FSO?
