Public sector jobs have never been more in demand. Providing economic stability, room for advancement and the opportunity to make an impact, public sector positions are a great option in a sometimes-unsteady, always competitive economy. But how exactly does one enter the public service? While having basic knowledge of government rules and regulations is required in our candidates, we also look for the following:
Be Mobile: If you have the ability to move anywhere, your chances at scoring your first public service gig are pretty good. Many job competitions are open in terms of location. If you mention you are willing to relocate where others are not, you become all the more desirable.
Gain Experience: Many permanent government workers start as temporary employees and work their way in. Temp work gives you access to internal job postings and people with whom to network.
If you are a recent graduate, or even a current student, you may be eligible for an internship or a co-op program for new professionals.
Network: It’s not just useful in the private sector. Perhaps you have an uncle in the public service. Maybe your neighbor has a friend who can get you an interview. Tap any resource you can.
One of the best ways to network is to set up an informational interview. If you are too intimidated to cold-call or e-mail human resource managers, keep up-to-date on job fairs and attend as many as possible.
Stay Persistent: These are a few pointers for how to break into the public service, but they are just the beginning. There are plenty of jobs in the public sector. Brush up on your bilingualism, find ways to improve your resume and keep applying. Persistence is half the battle.
Government ServicesThe government sector—often referred to as the Government Sector or the State Sector—is the aspect of the state that deals with the production, ownership, sale, provision, delivery and allocation of goods and services by and for the government and its citizen. Public sector activity can range from delivering social security, to administering urban planning or even organizing national defense at a national, regional or local and municipal level.. It can take several forms, including:
1) Direct administration funded through taxation; the delivering organization generally has no specific requirement to meet commercial success criteria, and production decisions are determined by government.
2) Publicly owned corporations (in some contexts, especially manufacturing, "state-owned enterprises"); which differ from direct administration in that they have greater commercial freedoms and are expected to operate according to commercial criteria, and production decisions are not generally taken by government (although goals may be set for them by government).
3) Partial outsourcing (of the scale many businesses do, e.g. for IT services), is considered a public sector model.
The role and scope of the public and state sector are often the biggest distinction regarding the economic positions of socialist, liberal and libertarian political philosophy. In general, socialists favor a large state sector consisting of state projects and enterprises, at least in the commanding heights or fundamental sectors of the economy (although some socialists favor a large cooperative sector instead). Social democrats tend to favor a medium-sized public sector that is limited to the provision of universal programs and public services. Economic libertarians and minarchists favor a larger private sector and small public sector with the state being relegated to protecting property rights, creating and enforcing laws and settling disputes—referred to as a "night watchman state."
Houston, Texas Executive Search Recruiters Houston’s economy is heavily based around its energy industry- particularly the oil and gas industry. While there are several other large companies headquartered in Houston, oil and natural gas giants continue to be the city’s major employers and main sources of revenue. Houston is a center for the manufacturing and transportation of oilfield equipment as well. In 2010 the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan statistical area’s gross domestic product was $385 billion. By GDP, the Houston MSA would be the world’s 22nd largest economy if it were its own country.

Houston, Texas Executive Search City Snapshot: Welcome to Houston, Texas; “Space City,” “H-Town,” the “Energy Capital of the World,” and Men’s Health Magazine’s “Fattest City in America.” Houston is HUGE (and not just the people). The city is home to over 2 million people and one of the tallest skylines in the world. Houston’s JP Morgan Chase Tower, Wells Fargo Bank Plaza, and Williams Tower all crack the list of top 50 tallest buildings in the U.S. As of 2012, 10 of the nation’s 100 tallest buildings are in Houston. Some famous people raised in this large, Texas city are: director Wes Anderson; broadcast journalist Walter Cronkite; South Park’s Matt Stone; actors Dennis and Randy Quaid, Patrick Swayze, and Isaiah Washington; comedian Bill Hicks; athletes Clyde Drexler, Vince Young, Roger Clemens, and George Foreman; singers Beyoncé Knowles, Lyle Lovett, Kelly Rowland, and Kenny Rogers; aerospace engineer, film director, and entrepreneur Howard Hughes; and famed heart surgeon Denton Cooley.
In 1836 Augustus Chapman Allen and John Kirby Allen purchased the land that is present day Houston, Texas. The Allen brothers were real estate entrepreneurs from New York who wanted to build a city along the Buffalo Bayou and take advantage of shipping routes to the Gulf of Mexico. They decided to name the city Houston after Sam Houston, hero of the Battle of San Jacinto and first president of the Republic of Texas. The city grew rapidly and by 1837 was the temporary capital of Texas.
By the 1860s, Houston had become a commercial shipping center for the South. During the American Civil War access to the city expanded to accommodate for Confederate Army operations. Then, in 1901, oil was discovered near Beaumont, Texas. This sparked the development of the Texas petroleum industry, which is still Houston’s most valuable industry today. By 1930 Houston was Texas’ most populated city.
After WWII, Houston experienced another population boom. In 1961 NASA built its “Manned Spacecraft Center” in Houston, which it used to defeat the Soviets in the race for lunar domination. Also, the invention of air conditioning led many companies to move their headquarters to the Houston area. Since its foundation, the city of Houston has not stopped growing. However, in the 1980s Houston’s economy suffered a slight setback as a result of the drop in nation-wide oil prices. Although it is still heavily reliant on its oil industry,
Houston has tried to diversify its economy over the last couple decades by growing its healthcare, biotechnology, and aerospace industries.
