Customs Officials


Employment at CBP is steady work that isn't directly affected by changes in the economy but varies depending on government spending. With the increased emphasis on law enforcement, especially the deterrence of those who who seek to enter the U.S. without permission and of terrorism, but also the detection of illegally imported drugs and the prevention of exports of sensitive high-technology items, employment in CBP is expected to be steady, but there will be strong competition for jobs. Bilingual individuals with law enforcement experience and a bachelor's degree will have better opportunities for employment as customs officials. Workers in state and federal agencies will have higher pay and more opportunities for advancement.
