If you answered in the affirmative to these two questions then why don’t you consider applying for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Recent Graduates Program? If you qualify, you will be placed in a dynamic and developmental program for a year or more depending on the position to develop your potential to lead a civil service career. (Note: If you are a veteran who can show proof of your qualifying service for veterans’ preference and were unable to apply within two years of receiving their degree, due to military service obligation, then you have up to six years after degree completion to apply.)Are you looking for a career with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection? Have you completed your qualifying associates, bachelors, masters, professional, doctorate, vocational, or technical degree or certificate from a qualifying educational institution within the previous two years?
Under the Recent Graduates Program, you may be appointed to any advertised positions with the CBP if you qualify for them but only up to the GS-09 grade level. If you graduated from science, technology, engineering, or mathematics, you may be eligible for appointment to higher grade levels. Once you are hired, the CBP will sign a Participant Agreement with you outlining the expectations for the Program.
What kind of training can you expect? First of all, you will learn all you need to know about it as you will undergo an Orientation Program together with all Recent Graduates. Mentorship is also going to be provided throughout the term of your appointment. You will also be given at least 40 hours of formal, interactive training for each year of the program and will be given your own Individual Development Plan to track your career planning, professional development, and training activities. You also have the opportunity to advance in your career even as you have the chance to be converted to a permanent or temporary post after successfully completing the program.
You could get hired by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection if you have completed the one-year continuous service and all the requirements of the program with flying colors; have demonstrated success in fulfilling the responsibilities of the job; and meet the qualifications for the position to which you will be hired either as a permanent or temporary employee.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection is an agency under the Department of Homeland Security. Its main task is to keep terrorists and their weapons from entering our nation. At the same time, they also see to it that legal trade and lawful individuals can enter and exit the United States smoothly.
