Customs Officer Resume Samples

A Customs Officer is responsible for helping to prevent the importation of dangerous or illegal goods including drugs, tobacco, alcohol, and endangered animals into the country. A well-written Customs Officer Resume mentions the following core duties and responsibilities – identifying people who are suspicious or have chances of committing the offense; searching baggage and individuals for smuggled products; marketing arrests of people who are suspected of smuggling, checking documentation relating to imported goods, detecting and prosecuting drug smugglers; writing reports, seizing smuggled goods, and dealing with revenue due on imported goods.

All officers are expected to be the nationals of the country they are working for, and free from certain criminal convictions. Customs Officers need to calm, resilient, assertive, and possess excellent communication, interpersonal, and team working skills. While a high school diploma or GED is sufficient to enter this profession, possessing an honors degree with some qualification in legal studies will be preferred.
