The Best Entry Level Government Jobs

The Best Entry Level Government Jobs

There is a lot of discussion about how government-sector jobs are more stable than others in our faltering economy and about how government hiring trends are predicted to be more resistant to the economic downturn than other sectors. Unfortunately, this doesn’t do you a whole lot of good, if you’ve got no idea of where to start in order to get hired.

    I an environmental scientist,with strong background in Chemistry,and I've been out of the military for almost a year now.Been to several job interviews,and all I get out of it is,''sorry, though you're very qualified for the job,but we don't have authority to fill the vacancies yet.And I'm really so puzzled because,I see a lot of job adverts and even alerts sent to me for me to apply,but it all end up in some human resources database and that's the end.
    I used to believe that somebody like me with all my experience both in the teaching and science field should at least be able to get a job within a short time frame.But the economy has made it quite tasking and challenging so far.My major concern now is I'll be turning 40years in the next couple of days and I know that from then on,latent discrimination will start setting in for employment.Pls,is there somebody out there that can explore my wealth of academic experience?

    Many of the comments I have just read are really lacking in correct spelling and grammar. Maybe most of you are not finding jobs because potential employers are aware of your deficiencies before you are able to show them your attributes. I would suggest taking an English course in any venue you are able to find. If you can't afford it, check in with your local school district and see if anyone will tutor you in exchange for services such as babysitting, minor home repairs, etc.

    I Just recently got out of the military also. I was an IT while I was in for 8 years. It is hard to get a job once you get out. The only reason why I was about to get a nice government job afterwards is not because of what I knew but who I knew. Experience and a degree can only get you so far BUT if you know someone that is already at the company your trying to get into thats how your going to get in.

    I think that it is great that they want everyone to have a degree, but a degree does not mean that you are better at the job than someone who has been doing the job while you got your degree. I think they are going to far with this and they need to look at what a person has for knowledge and not some piece of paper.

    I was in the military for 5+ yrs. I worked in the Human Resources Dept. and I also had my AA in Business Administration while I was in. I'm currently working towards my BS in International Business. I've been unlucky and ever since I've got out of the military I was unable to find a job. I applied online, gone to job fairs, seek professional assistance @ the Dept. of Labor and still unsucessful.

    I recently graduated with a degree in geology and posses extensive business and non-profit management experience. Because I am a woman and because I am 48, I am finding it hard to find employment in the energy field. Any hints for entry level positions (BS not MS) would be greatly appreciated!
