Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is the largest investigative arm of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and is a vital asset in combating criminal organizations illegally exploiting America’s travel, trade, and financial systems. HSI enforces a diverse array of federal statutes with investigative disciplines in the following areas:
• Financial crimes, money laundering and bulk cash smuggling;
• Commercial fraud and intellectual property theft;
• Human rights violations;
• Human smuggling and trafficking;
• Document and benefit fraud;
• Narcotics and weapons smuggling/trafficking;
• Transnational gang activity;
• Export enforcement; and,
• International art and antiquity theft.
The HSI Student Intern/Volunteer Program (SVP) offers unpaid, professional training opportunities to undergraduate and graduate college students (For January – May 2024). These opportunities provide work experience related to the students’ academic programs and provide them an opportunity to explore career options, as well as develop their personal and professional skills. The SVP is an uncompensated position and does not count towards existing vacancies.
The SVP will vary by office but will enrich the students’ futures by:
• Allowing career exploration early in their academic studies;
• Exposing them to new and emerging occupations;
• Giving academic credit for volunteer work they perform (as determined by the college or university); and
• Providing an experience that will enhance their ability to obtain paying jobs in the future.
As a volunteer with HSI New England, students will be assigned to one of several investigative groups, from the above-listed program areas, located in the greater Boston area. Students will report directly to a Supervisory Special Agent and learn alongside Special Agents and Intelligence Research Specialists.
The SVP program is part-time and days/hours worked will be coordinated with selectees to not impact studies. The SVP requires a written agreement signed by all parties–HSI, the academic institution, and the student. Candidate qualifications include the following: U.S. Citizenship; enrollment at an accredited academic institution; good academic standing; ability to pass a background investigation; and, subject to drug testing.
Send resume and unofficial transcripts to HSIBostonRecruitmentTeam@hsi.dhs.gov . Please include in the email which location (s) you are interested in as well as your interest as a Special Agent intern.
