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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
The 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:
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.”

Yee-haw partner! Welcome to Austin, the capital of the great state of Texas. Austin has been Texas’ capital since it was founded in 1839. Back in the late 1830s, Republic of Texas Vice President Mirabeau B.
