Applying for Immigration and Customs Enforcement Positions


Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is united by

  • Our mission to protect America
  • Uphold public safety
  • Its highly talented and committed workforce

Here is how to find your opportunity to contribute your talents to our agency.

  1. Find the Job that is Right for You—Visit the USAJobs Electronic Portal to government-wide employment opportunities where you can search for current ICE employment opportunities by job category, location, salary, and more.

  2. Review the Job Announcement—ICE job announcements will provide you important information about job qualifications, duties, salary, duty location, benefits, and security requirements. Here you will be able to determine if your interests, education, and professional background make you a good candidate for the job.

    All ICE jobs require U.S. citizenship and most require successful completion of a full background investigation. In addition, applicants may be required to submit to a drug test or pass a written test as part of the application process.

  3. Apply for the Job—Carefully follow instructions on the “how to apply” tab of the job announcement. Instructions will guide you through the application process, providing you detailed information on the questions, forms, and format that must be addressed and used to capture your qualifications for the job. Be sure to submit all required documents and pay close attention to the application due date and application procedures, which will vary depending on the job and the department component.

    Persons with disabilities who hold a certification eligibility letter from a State Vocational Rehabilitation Office or the Department of Veterans Affairs may apply for ICE employment opportunities through one of several special hiring authorities. Applicants with certification eligibility letters may apply directly to the ICE Selective Placement Coordinator listed below to be considered for a job.

    Selective Placement Coordinator

    Phone: 202-732-1220
    Email: Maria.Jackson1@dhs.gov

    If you need reasonable accommodation for any part of the application and/or questionnaire process, immediately notify the point of contact identified in the job announcement.

    For more information on hiring authorities, please visit the Office of Personnel Management's Federal Employment of People with Disabilities site.

  4. Interview for the Job—The names of best-qualified candidates will be forwarded to the supervisor or hiring official. If you are one of the best-qualified candidates, the supervisor or hiring official may interview you in person or by telephone, or in rare cases may hire you based solely on your application materials. Selection procedures are subject to Federal Civil Service laws, which ensure that all applicants receive fair and equal treatment in the hiring process.
