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."

New Jersey Executive Search City Snapshot: Welcome to New Jersey, the “Garden State.” New Jersey was one of America’s original 13 colonies the 3rd US state to enter the Union. The state lies in the Middle Atlantic and Northeastern regions, east of Pennsylvania, south of New York, north of Delaware, and along the Atlantic coast. New Jersey’s capital city, Trenton, is 33 miles from Philadelphia, PN and 66 miles from New York, NY. The state’s motto is “liberty and prosperity;” the state animal is the horse; the state flower is the common violet; the state bird is the American Goldfinch; the state fruit is the Highbush Blueberry; and the state bug is the Honeybee. Many famous entertainers and political figures were born in New Jersey, including: Buzz Aldrin, Jason Alexander, Samuel Alito, Jon Bon Jovi, Grover Cleveland, Lou Costello, Danny DeVito, Michael Douglass, Steve Forbes, James Gandolfini, Ed Harris, Whitney Houston, Derek Jeter, Artie Lange, Queen Latifah, Jerry Lewis, Ray Liotta, Andrew McCarthy, Troy “Murphdog” Murphy, Joe Pesci, Antonin Scalia, Frank Sinatra, Kevin Spacey, Bruce Springsteen, Martha Stewart, Meryl Streep, John Travolta, Frankie Valli, and Lee Van Cleef.

Before Europeans arrived in present day New Jersey, the region was home to the Lenni-Lenape Native Americans. The Dutch were the first Europeans to settle in the area. Michiel Pauw, director of the Dutch West India Company, founded the first European settlement along the North River. In 1664 the English, led by Colonel Richard Nicolls, took control of the Dutch Fort Amsterdam in present day New York Harbor and annexed the entire province. They named the land the Province of New Jersey after Sir George Carteret’s English Channel Island Jersey.

The Province of New Jersey was an ethnically and religiously diverse colony. Many Europeans came here to escape religious persecution in the 1600s. New England Congregationalists, Scottish Presbyterians, Dutch Reformed Church members, English Quakers, and Anglicans all lived together in the colony. Today, New Jersey is still known for its ethnic and religious diversity.

New Jersey was the site of many significant Revolutionary War battles. Some of those battles include: the Battle of Monmouth, the Battle of Princeton, and the Battle of Red Bank. But the most famous was the Battle of Trenton. On December 25, 1777, George Washington led an army of Revolutionists across the Delaware River in a surprise attack against the Hessian army in Trenton. The American army killed 22 Hessians and captured 896. Washington’s victory at the Battle of Trenton shifted the momentum of the Revolutionary War and inspired more soldiers to enlist in the Revolutionary army. The moment before the battle was dramatized and immortalized in Emanuel Leutze’s painting Washington Crossing the Delaware.

In 1804, New Jersey became the last northern state to abolish slavery. It was one of the few northern states to select a President other than Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and 1864. New Jersey was not the site of any Civil War battles, but over 80,000 people from the state enlisted in the Union army.

A few decades later, New Jersey became a key state in the Industrial Revolution. A period of crop failures and poor soil forced New Jersey’s economy to shift from agriculture to industrialization. The state’s economy became heavily based on its textile and silk manufacturing. Thomas Edison invented hundreds of industrial gadgets and gizmos from his research facilities in Menlo Park, NJ and West Orange, NJ.

During the first half of the 20th century, New Jersey was a center for war production. The state was essential for naval construction during World War I and II. Battleships, cruisers, and destroyers were all manufactured in New Jersey. In 1962 the world’s first nuclear-powered cargo ship, the NS Savannah, as launched at Camden. The state is still a major shipbuilding center today. The state’s airship record is not so strong however. In 1937 New Jersey’s Lakehurst Naval Air Station became the site of the infamous Hindenburg disaster.

In 1951, the New Jersey Turnpike opened. It allowed fast travel between metropolitan New York in North Jersey and metropolitan Philadelphia in South Jersey. Today, New Jersey is one of the wealthiest states in America, by median household income. However, New Jersey is still the butt of many jokes. Despite its dangerous areas and its unfavorable perception in the public eye, New Jersey is still a great place to live.
