With five distinct mission areas related to securing the homeland, the Department of Homeland Security is the ideal employer to maximize the skills and training veterans have acquired while serving our country, as well as the commitment to serve and protect our nation.
The Department is committed to providing employment opportunities for our veterans and service members returning home from active duty. Hiring veterans into DHS honors the sacred promise that military service members and veterans have made to protect our nation. “America is a stronger nation, not only because of what our veterans have given, but also because of what they continue to contribute. Military service members are on the front lines at home and abroad, working tirelessly to protect our nation,” said former Secretary Janet Napolitano in her 2011 Veterans Day message.
Veterans serve across the Department in a wide range of positions, including Transportation Security Officers, Border Patrol agents, Homeland Security investigators, and a various mission support positions. Join the team and continue to help secure our Homeland.
