Homeland Security jobs are opening all over the country.
Here’s what you need to know to find the one that fits your career goals.
article Posted by Crypto Coins on December 19, 2018 09:47:16The number of available Homeland Security job openings has been steadily climbing, and it’s expected to continue to climb, according to a report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
The agency’s quarterly report, released on December 16, said that the total number of vacancies for positions at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was more than 3,000 on November 23.
That number is expected to double to 6,000 positions by mid-2018, according the GAO report.
The increase in vacancies comes as the Trump administration continues to focus its efforts on building out the nation’s security infrastructure, the report said.
The report said that DHS had been operating under a hiring freeze since March 2019.
That policy was in place until September 2020, when Trump rescinded the freeze and said the agency could use its existing budget to hire.
Since then, DHS has been on pace to hire more than 12,000 jobs per month, according a recent study by the Migration Policy Institute, a Washington-based think tank.
The institute noted that this is a huge increase over the 5,800 job openings that DHS reported in August and September of this year.
The government continues to open new positions as it seeks to build a stronger defense against terrorism and cyberthreats.
In a recent report, the GAOs National Security Council estimated that there were more than 1.8 million federal civilian employees in the federal government, a number that has been growing at a rate of nearly 7 percent per year since January 2020.
That’s a significant increase over a one-year period when the number of civilian employees had been declining.
The GAO reported that the number was up 1,000 civilian employees since October 2020, while the number has increased by more than 20,000 per month since February 2021.
The number also has risen as new positions have been created in key security-related sectors, including aviation, military and cybersecurity, according, the agency.
But, the overall number of positions in the DHS workforce has fallen sharply over the past several years.
The GAO found that the overall civilian workforce of the Department fell by more that 7 percent between 2020 and 2021.
That decline has been driven by the outsourcing of a large portion of its responsibilities.
In 2021, about half of the DHS employees who were employed in cybersecurity were contractors, and that percentage dropped to about 25 percent in 2022.
The number of cybersecurity jobs was about 40 percent lower in 2022 than it was in 2020.
The decrease in cybersecurity jobs has been largely driven by outsourcing, with more than 90 percent of the cybersecurity jobs being outsourced to foreign companies.
In 2019, the DHS reported that about 50 percent of cybersecurity employees were foreign-born.
