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.

    Recently retired from the Air Force after 27-years. Leadership/mgmt experience all over the world. Bachelors in Mgmt/HR. Current Top Secret/SCI clearance. Cannot get my foot in the Federal GS door! Trying GS 5-11 openings with zero success! Becoming a believer in "it's who you know"!

    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!

    This is something that I am looking into as I am currently with the Red Cross as a volunteer that works with client of both military and disasters. I am a Manager in the field of Cleint Casework that help clients to help themselves by Red cross giving them the first baby steps of returning to a normal life before the incident happen to some extent. It will never be like before but will help them to think about what to do next. WIth the millitary Red Cross helps keep communications open between family and service person by sending messages about a birth, death illness and financial aide. We, ARC, hve been there for all that need assistance from us. I have been doing this kind of work for over 23 years, and hope to continue as long as I can. I will have a associates degree in arts with criminal justice.
