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.

    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 !!!!!!

    I served one tour in the United State Army, active duty, and received an honorable discharge. I married an army infantry soldier and we now live in Alaska and we have five beautiful children. My desire while the kids were young was to work in the home with them and a few years later had the opportunity to homeschool my children for a while. It was a great experience for our family. In 2001 I was introduced to the Emergency Services field through a local fire department in which I found to be quite fascinating. I decided to go back to school and am actively seeking and completing a Public Safety and Emergency Management degree with the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. I recently joined the Alaska Air National Guard in which I am also in an Emergency Services field. I have a passion for all nations and our local governments to find a common ground in which we all may globally make this a safer world in which to live.

    I am retiring after 23 years of service in the United States Army and looking at exploiting my leadership, knowledge, and experience with an organization such as Home Land Security. How do I find a position that doesn't have an age requirement of under 40 years of age?
