We're Hiring! Join Us at the DHS Cyber and Tech Job Fair

DHS Cyber and Tech Job Fair - July 27-28, 2016 The Department of Homeland Security is committed to building a world-class cyber workforce. Recruiting and hiring professionals with expertise in the areas of cybersecurity, information security, and a broad range of other IT competencies is vital.

To do this, DHS will host the first ever DHS Cyber and Tech Job Fair on July 27-28 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. This event marks the first time that eligible candidates can interview for an opening, receive a tentative job offer, and initiate the security process – all on the spot. Expediting the hiring process will help ensure that DHS can fill mission-critical positions to protect our nation’s cyberspace.

At the Cyber and Tech Job Fair, we will be looking to hire the best and brightest entrepreneurs, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and problem solvers. We strongly encourage candidates to apply to one of the job opportunities in advance to be eligible for an on-the-spot interview.

Here’s how it works:

  1. View the latest job vacancy announcements on USAJOBS.
  2. Apply for one or more the job vacancy announcements.
  3. Qualified applicants may receive an invite to interview with a DHS hiring manager who will be on-site during the fair. 
  4. If selected by a hiring manager, candidates may receive a tentative job offer and initiate the security clearance process on-site.

If selected, you’ll have an immediate opportunity to serve our Nation DHS as a DHS employee and make a difference for millions of Americans. 

If you do not register in advance, or if you are not selected to interview, you can still you can attend the event as a walk-in and learn more about employment opportunities from DHS components and from the Office of Personnel Management.

Join our team in executing the DHS mission. Learn more about the DHS Cyber and Tech Job Fair at DHS.gov/cyberfair and follow along on social media with the hashtag #DHSCyberFair.
