EL PASO, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations is currently seeking applicants for CBP officer positions at 22 locations around the country including the El Paso port of entry.
“This is an opportunity for area residents who want to work for CBP but not leave the community they already call home,” said CBP Director of Field Operations Hector Mancha. “CBP officer positions specifically designated for El Paso do not become available often so now is the time to act.”
In an effort to assist area job seekers CBP recruiters are conducting a hiring seminar July 26. Trained CBP officers will be available to discuss the steps applicants need to take to successfully submit an application. They will help applicants navigate the federal application process paying specific attention to being prepared to complete applications using accurate information, employment dates and similar items normally required when applying for a career. Minimum job requirements and resume building tips will also be covered.
The hiring seminar is being held at Park University/East campus located at 1330 Adabel Drive in El Paso. Sessions are scheduled for 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 6 p.m. and run three hours. Space is limited so those wishing to attend should register in advance by calling 915-834-8849 or 915-478-6758.
The current CBP officer vacancy closes July 31.
