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.

    Hi my name is Heather Matthews and I recently graduated college with a double degree in Russian and International Studies with a specialization in Security and Intelligence. I haven't had any luck with my job search as of yet and I was hoping someone would be able to give me some advice about getting my foot in the door with government jobs. Thanks!

    Apparently this article is over two years old, according to the oldest comment posted for it. Things can change over time and these may no longer be the "best" entry jobs for the federal government!

    Just like everyone else, I am also looking for an entry level government job but all these positions ask for experience. How do I go about getting a job if I dont really have any experience? Help from anyone is highly appreciated.

    I agree, I have applied for entry level jobs countless times. I even received an email stating that my score was 96 but my application was not going to be forwarded to a hiring manager. At the present time I am studying. I hope it will help me. Apparently for Gov Central everything is a paradise but in reality it is not.

    I have been in the US Army for 25 years I retired in 2003, and I have submitted numerous apps to the government in hopes to get hired and work for them again. I have found that civilian life is not for me and need to get back into the system, I have a Disability rating of 70% and now Im in college trying to get a degree in business. My main field is Logistics management and learning the business field is a plus.
