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."

Milwaukee, Wisconsin Executive Search City Snapshot: Welcome to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, also known as: “Beer City,” “Brew Town,” and “The City of Festivals.” The city’s large quantity of German immigrants helped give it these nicknames. Milwaukee was once the world’s leading beer producer home to four of the world’s largest beer breweries: Schlitz, Blatz, Pabst, and Miller. Today only the Miller Brewing Company remains in Milwaukee. But, this city is more than just a beer production center. Milwaukee is a large and historically significant city on Lake Michigan’s western shore.

The Menominee, Fox, Mascouten, Sauk, Potawatomi, Ojibwe, and Ho-Chunk Native American people lived in the Milwaukee area before the 1700s. In the late 1600s, French fur traders began trading throughout the Great Lakes region. Early European explorers referred to the Milwaukee River and the area west of Lake Michigan as “Melleorki,” “Milwacky,” Mahn-a-waukie,” “Milwarck,” and “Milwaucki.” Eventually the name “Milwaukee” stuck. In the early 1800s, Europeans established trading posts along the Milwaukee River. By 1840 three of these posts- Juneautown, Kilbourntown, and Walker’s Point- had grown into sizable towns. In 1846 the three towns came together as the City of Milwaukee.

In the mid to late 1800s, many German and Polish immigrants moved to Milwaukee. They came to America to escape poverty and political oppression and found Milwaukee desirable for its abundance of low-wage, entry-level jobs. By 1915, the city’s Polish population reached over 100,000- a quarter of Milwaukee’s total population. In the late 1800s, many African Americans from the South moved up North to Milwaukee, looking for low-wage manufacturing work. After WWII, many Hispanic people moved to the city as well. In the early 1900s, several “inner-ring” suburb cities began popping up, such as: Whitefish Bay, South Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, Cudahy, North Milwaukee, Shorewood, West Allis, and West Milwaukee.

Today, Milwaukee is a racially diverse city with many distinct historic and ethnic neighborhoods. Over the years, several famous individuals have come out of Milwaukee, including: athletes Tom Dempsey, Devin Harris, and Latrell Sprewell; actors Heather Graham, Jane Kaczmarek, Kato Kaelin, and Gene Wilder; inventor Les Paul; Chief Justice William Rehnquist; mathematician Herbert John Ryser; serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer; MLB commissioner Bud Selig; directors David and Jerry Zucker; musician Steve Miller; US General Billy Mitchell; NASA astronaut Jim Lovell; Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir; and talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
