ARLINGTON - Who wants to wear a badge and a windbreaker (and maybe a bulletproof vest?) to work?! The Department of Homeland Security will be in DFW Tuesday and Wednesday, looking for a few good men and women to join up.
DHS is in Arlington for the next two days, recruiting North Texans interested in jobs including ICE agents, Border Patrol, Secret Service, and FEMA employees.
The department also put out its first ever female-only job announcement for positions like enforcement and removal, deportation office, and ice homeland security investigations.
The event will also have on-site interviews, panels discussing the federal application process, women in law enforcement, a 'Day in the Life' of these professions, how to build a federal resume, and even a 'DHS Law Enforcement Challenge,' for those who want to experience some of the federal law enforcement weapons tests and physical requirements (bring athletic gear and a pen to sign a waiver if you're interested in that one), along with other related topics.
The job fair runs from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Arlington Convention Center.
Candidates are being sought for positions including:
Customs and Border
Border Patrol Agents
Air Interdiction Agents
Marine Interdiction Agents
Aviation Enforcement Agents
Physical Security Specialists
Digital Forensic Analysts
Agencies at the job fair:
US Customs and Border Protection
