In an uncertain economic climate, working for the govern-
ment is a smart choice. Jobs in government often provide
more benefits, better retirement packages, and greater job
security than their private-sector counterparts.
If you’re interested in finding a government job, you’ve
come to the right place. This book shows you where to
look for these jobs, describes them in detail, and explains
how to apply for them. You may have to jump through
some hoops to get a government job. Most applicants
have to take tests, get put on a waiting list, and submit to
invasive background checks and credit checks. This is the
gauntlet you must pass through if you want a government
job. You have to be passionate about your job goals. The
most successful people, in or our of government, are those
who are passionate about what they do.
And who knows? You may even be enriched and
rewarded in more ways than purely financial. T he job you
find may be an opportunity to serve the greater good and
make a difference in the lives of your fellow citizens. Not a
bad way to earn a living. Not bad at all.
