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.”
Denver owes much of its growth to its location. The city is nearly equidistant from large cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Since Denver became linked to the transcontinental railroad in 1870, the city has become a literal center for transportation and the storage of goods and services for Mountain, Midwest, Southwest, and Western states. Also, Denver is the largest city within a 500-mile radius. For much of the city’s history, Denver’s economy was heavily reliant on its mining industry. When the price of oil dropped from $34 a barrel in 1981 to $9 a barrel in 1986, Denver’s economy struggled. Today, Denver’s economy is more diversified, with several large companies headquartered within the city’s limits.
This is a list of the Fortune 500 Companies within 50 miles of Denver. Of these nine companies, only one is located within the city of Denver. The other eight companies are located in the surrounding cities of Englewood, Greenwood Village, and Broomfield.
Welcome to Denver, the “Mile-High City.” The official elevation is 5,280 feet (1 mile) above sea level, making Denver one of the highest major cities in the U.S. Make sure to bring your oxygen masks if you need them.
Americans first settled in Denver during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush (later known as the Colorado Gold Rush) of 1858. People came from across the country in search of gold and settled along the South Platte River on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains. In 1861, when Colorado Territory was established, the area was incorporated as Denver City, named after former Kansas Governor James W. Denver.
In its early years, Denver was a frontier town. Its economy relied on its saloons, cattle, and local goods. Much of the city was made up of rough and tough minin’ folk who liked a little gamblin’, whiskey drinkin’, and prostitute minglin’. In 1870 Denver’s citizens completed the Denver Pacific railroad. This railroad linked to the transcontinental railroad and connected Denver to the rest of the nation. With railroad access, Denver prospered as a service and supply center. Shortly after in 1876, Colorado became a state in the Union.
As Denver grew, many wealthy people, including mining company millionaires, built luxury mansions in the city. Luxury buildings such as the Tabor Grand Opera House, the Brown Palace Hotel, the Croke, Patterson, Campbell Mansion, and the Moffat Mansion started popping up all over town.
In the late 19th century, Denver was politically corrupt. Gangsters like Soapy Smith and other wealthy people worked with elected officials and police to control city elections and gambling. The Silver Crash of 1893 made life even harder for Denver’s lower class. Between 1953 and 1989 there was a nuclear weapon facility called Rocky Flats Plant about 15 miles outside Denver. The FBI raided the plant in 1989 when they discovered that it had been violating numerous environmental safety laws. Apparently the plant was leaking nuclear waste. Studies have linked plutonium-239 contamination in Rocky Flats and Denver with an increase in birth defects and cancer. In recent years, Denver’s metro area has become well known for two infamous events: the 1999 Columbine High School massacre and the 2012 Aurora movie theater shooting.

According to 2010 Census data, 600,158 people live in Denver. This number has increased steadily over the past century with small drops in the 1970s and 1980s. The population of the Denver-Aurora-Broomfield Metropolitan Area is about 2.5 million.
Denver’s population is younger than the average U.S. city. 25-34 year olds make up 19.62% of Denver’s population compared to 13.4% of the national population. The percentage of Denverites over 65 years is 8.66% while the percentage in the U.S. is 11.9%. The high altitude and strenuous weather make Denver an unfavorable place to live for many elderly people. Because of its younger population, the city has been historically very liberal. In 2005 Denver became the first major city to legalize the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana.
