What is the best way to get into any one of the departments under Homeland Security?

I enjoy solving mysteries and finding out information through research. Also I enjoy traveling and I have moved around a little bit. I have worked as a security guard for 3 years, I also have licences to carry a weapon and I have an interest in Information Technology. I plan on joining the Air force for the possibilities it may bring and to also give my life a little more structure . #military #information-technology #Homeland #Security #Air Force

The best DHS in my opinion is in the Coast Guard. I absolutely love it. We have a great relationship with CBP as well.

Matt’s Answer

I have had similar experience in equivalent sectors in Australia.
There is always a need to attract talent to government sectors, most departments/agencies, even the spooky ones will have a careers website.

There's also the referrals route, get involved in local industry groups; for me cyber security groups like sectalks opened a lot of connections and opportunities.
