    Hello. Looks like CBP are hiring for a "Technician" position. This is definitely not a LE role, but seems like it may be a decent entry-level opportunity. The posting emphasizes clerical duties which is disconcerting. Would this job provide any relevant experience for a greater role in CBP, or is it kind of a dead end? Thanks for any insight.
    Once you are in the federal government, you are able to apply to positions which are only available to federal employees. Depending on your goals, it might not be a bad step to take.

    • I'd like to apply for CBP technician, but I was told I failed a poly a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't received final results from QC. Can I still apply for CBP technician?

        What's a "CBP Inspector"?

        Anyhow, I imagine it'll depend.

        Jobs like Ag. Specialist require a background and arguably a clearance. A failed poly might impact those positions.

        Other positions, less so.

        Apply for whatever job interests you. At worst, you be disqualified based on one level or another the results of your poly.

            In a way, I'd say it's a bit of both.

            The job is more or less a basic assistant, clerical, go-for position. There is basically no real promotion avenue,. In that sense, it's a dead end.

            On the other hand, you get some relevant experience with some of the admin functions, a bit of peripheral experience with most of the port's functions and, probably most important, you get to spend a lot of time with management and the admin people. There's a chance to get noticed and wanted by the people who run things, which may translate into an easier transition within the port if and when you apply and are hired into other entry level positions available at the port.

              Apply. At worst they'll disqualify you at some point in the process.

              • I have my VBT scheduled next month for CBPO. Can I still apply for the new posting for border patrol? Will my CBPO application get canceled?

                  You can apply to border patrol. CBP and BP are two different kind of jobs. Your CBP application won't get canceled. Personally, I just applied for the BP announcement that it's opened right now and I'm still have a CBPO application open as well.

                          • Long time follower. I am a 13-1 applicant for the SWB. I just got the call this morning for SYS, Calexico, and San Luis Arizona. It has been a long process, but I see the light!! For those of you in the process, patient is key and I will be praying for all you to finish!
