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.”

Welcome to Columbus, Ohio; “The Discovery City,” “Cowtown,” and “The Biggest Small Town In America.” Columbus is the largest city in, and capital of, Ohio. The city sits in the middle of Ohio, in Franklin County, and at the meeting of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers. Many famous people have come out of Columbus over the years, including: James Thurber, Buster Douglas, Jack Nicklaus, Randy Savage, Eddie Rickenbacker, Bow Wow, Dwight Yoakam, Jerrie Mock, and Prescott Bush.
Ohio became a state in 1803. In the state’s early years its capital moved from Chillicothe to Zanesville and then back to Chillicothe again. Finally, Ohio’s leaders decided to build a permanent Capital in the center of the state, along river and (future) railroad lines. In 1812 Ohio residents founded their capital city and named it Columbus after the “discoverer” of America Christopher Columbus. The new city was pretty small and desolate until the National Road reached it in 1831. The National Road connected Columbus to the Ohio and Erie Canal and the rest of the country.
Pretty soon, people started pouring into Columbus. Many German and Irish immigrants settled in the new city in the early 1830s. Columbus became fully incorporated in 1834. In the early 1850s the Xenia Railroad and the Columbus, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad brought even more people and commerce to Columbus. A decade later, the city was a major base for volunteer soldiers of the Union Army during the American Civil War. In the late 1800s, the city was a center for manufacturing and industrialization. With over a dozen carriage factories, the city became the “Buggy Capital of the World.” The steel industry was also an essential part of the city’s economy. Samuel P. Bush (grandfather of President George H.W. Bush) led the city’s Buckeye Steel Casting Company. Columbus was also a central city in the Labor Movement. In 1886 Samuel Gompers founded the American Federation of Labor in the Columbus. Also, in 1890 laborers founded the United Mine Workers of America at Columbus’ old City Hall.
Columbus continued to grow and expand its economy throughout the early 1900s. The city’s diverse economy helped it pull through the Great Depression with minimal damage. Columbus’ strong, diverse economy helped it rebound faster than many other major cities after the 2008 recession as well.
