Homeland Security - Most Exciting Government Jobs

Representing the centralization of hundreds of smaller US Government jobs, Homeland Security has emerged as a new, well-funded, and extremely important industry after the September 2001 attacks. Homeland Security encompasses a broad range of activities, all of which are highly engaging – not to mention high risk.

So, what type of jobs are exciting? Let’s start with broad categories – further down the page, we cover specific jobs.

    Important notice!......If you wish federal employment www.usajobs.gov is the best place to go. This website will give you info of what jobs are available and how to apply for these jobs. Pay strict attention to the details or you will have no chance at all. Good luck (By the way, I am currently employed by 'US Customs and Border Protection' (CBP), and have been a Federal employee for 11 years). (samkim and Mzdae are most correct in their comments).

    Samkim is right.. there is no need for people to be posting there resume and history on this website. The jobs are at www.usajobs.gov. This website is not part of the government its a .com website not .gov. Come on please put your thinking caps on lol...

    Everyone looking for a gov job needs to get to www.usajobs.gov. That's where you apply for government jobs. As far as I know, that's the central point where all federal job postings are located. As for vets, the VA has people who can assist you in putting together a resume, but that's about it. They won't be sending resumes out on your behalf. There are a lot of good info on how to apply for fed jobs on there. Please be careful to follow all the instructions or you won't hear back much of anything.

    The process is actually not that difficult, you search for jobs, it'll say what they're looking for. Put together a resume and you'll need to upload it, or actually write the resume in the website. Either way, cut and paste will probably help. You have to submit your resume before the cut off time, it'll says something like, OPEN Period, which are the days they're taking applications/resumes. Like I said, be very careful to follow all the directions in the "How to Apply" section. If you're missing something they're looking for, call the number on job posting and ask what you'd need to do to get it corrected. No one's going to get a fed job by posting comments on this govcentral website. This is a website promoting monster.com. The gov rarely posts jobs on here.

    Good luck everyone.

    I am a veteran and has served 4 active years the U.S. Navy (2001-2005), honorably discharged, and then served 6 month in the naval reserves before going into the IRR. I am close to getting my bachelor's in forensics psychology and I want to get any stable government job that offers $40k+. While actively serving, I obtained a TS/SCI clearance while I was in the Navy in order to do some on the job training with the ITs on the ship. I was also the supply guy of my division. In addition, I was also the computer tech guy for the engineering dept. of my command. I also have 2.5 years of engraving (brass and plastic) experience. While in the service, I stood numerous hours of watch with a firearm, so I know how to handle a weapon. Thanks for your time!

    I am a Disable Vietnam Veteran with a Bachelors Degree in Accounting, and Masters in Business Administration. In the US Army, I was a Communications Systems Specialist/Radio/Teletype Operator. I speak, read, write, interpret, and translate fluent German, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. I have twenty five years+ Technical/Administrative experience - Systems Analyst, Budget Analyst, Contract Specialist. I was hired by Homeland Security in January 2003 as an Immigration Inspector, but was injured during the training at the Federal Law Enforcement Academy. Because of my Disability, my physical capabilities are restricted. However, I will like very much to work as an Adjudication Officer for Homeland Security. While in the Military, I obtained a Top Secret Clearance, and worked at the Pentagon Washington DC, as a Budget Analyst. If you know of any Vacancies, leads, or tips in obtaining employment as an Adjudication Officer for Homeland Security, please e-mail me at schoenerman@usfamily.net. I am presently facing Foreclosure, and I urgently need employment. However, once more, I am Disable. Thanks!

    I am a Navy retiree after 20+ years on active duty. I retired as a CPO (Chief Corpsman), and did two tours of duty with the USMC. I retired as a Field Medical Technician (NEC 8505) and Instructor/Trainer (NEC 9502).
    Wanting to continue public service, I am presently a Deputy Sheriff with the Washington County Sheriff's Office in Iowa. I have been employed with the Sheriff's Office since December 1990 and am getting ready to retire from my second public service career.
    I am looking forward to continuing my service to my country and would be interested in a position with the DHS, DOT, Criminal Investigations or an Instructor/Trainer job in Afghanistan, Iraq or anywhere overseas.

    I served during the Vietnam Era until 1978 during the last three years of that service as well as the subsequent 30 years I have been a multi-disciplinary Designer/Drafter. I have experience working on DoD & DoE projects requiring either TS or Q clearances. Additionally, since 1971, I have been a mixed-martial arts instructor (before they coined the term recently), a proficient musician and craftsman/artisan. As a "Technical Generalist" I believe I offer alot to the position of Transportation Inspector or TSA Officer for Homeland Security.

    I served 24 yrs in the Navy and loved it but, now I am unemployed searching for a job. It's real tough because I am only a five point vet and It's like I am being punished for serving my country and retiring healthy. I am a phone hang up every time I call the V.a. for anything. I really think they laugh at me very loud when I hang the phone up. All I want is to go to school and get a good paying job to support my family and feel useful again. Maybe the post 911 GiBill will be of some help............Thanks for listen....no phone to hang up !!!!!!
