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 as well as their spouses and family members. Hiring veterans and military spouses into DHS honors the sacred promise that veterans and their spouses have made to protect our nation.
Veterans as well as military spouses serve across DHS in a wide range of positions, including Transportation Security Officers, Border Patrol agents, Homeland Security investigators, and various mission support positions. Join the team that is Proud to Protect. Visit our Searching/Applying for a Federal Job page for additional resources.
