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.”

Major high tech international companies with offices in Dallas include: Nortel Networks, Alcatel Lucent, Ericsson, Fujitsu, Sprint, Verizon Communications, and Cisco Systems.

Howdy partner, welcome to Dallas, Texas; the “Big D.” While you’re here, remember Dallas’ slogan, “Live Large. Think Big.”
Dallas was not always the colossal city it is today. When the city was first incorporated in 1856, it was primarily reliant on its agricultural industry. A better word for “industry” might be “collection of ranches.” Dallas’ population didn’t really take off until 1873, when several railroad lines were built through the town. Soon, Dallas became a leader in the manufacturing and distribution of cotton and oil. By the early 1900s Dallas had become a transportation hub for the central and south central regions of the United States.
In the 1950s and 1960s, the interstate highway system helped further connect Dallas to the rest of the country. Also during this time, the city build the Dallas/ Fort Worth International Airport, which today is one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. Geographically, the airport is a convenient place for transferring flights to all parts of the country. Also due to its location, Dallas is one of the most popular cities for business conferences.
Over the last few decades, many businesses have moved their headquarters to the Dallas/ Fort Worth area for the city’s location as well as its low real estate prices. Since the 1980s, Dallas has been one of the largest cities in the U.S. to experience significant declines in rent prices. In 2010 the national average decline in rent was around 4%. In Dallas the average rent declined by 8%. It’s cheaper and more convenient for businesses to open giant headquarter buildings in Dallas than, for example, New York or San Francisco. Dallas has grown tremendously over the past century, and it has the capacity and physical room to continue growing.

According to 2010 Census data, 1,197,816 people live in Dallas. This number is up only 0.8% since 2000. Every Census has shown an increase in Dallas’ population. This last decade however, experienced the smallest increase. This slowing rate of population increase does not necessarily indicate that city’s economy is struggling. Dallas is full of growing businesses and job opportunities. One reason the city’s population growth is slowing is that Dallas’ neighboring cities are growing.
A few decades ago, most of the area surrounding Dallas was country and farmland. Dallas’ land area was already very large and growth was mainly occurring within the city and its downtown area. In recent years, many businesses have moved their headquarters to cities like Plano, Frisco, Irving, Fort Worth, Richardson, Addison, Allen, and Grapevine in Dallas’ growing metropolitan area.
