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.

    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.

    All I know for now, the government United State pretty stupid, let all the Chinese peoples get involved to much, with in all the companies, and causing all your own peoples including International peoples whose is living in the U.S loosing to many job, and the more peoples loosing the job, the less tax government going to have, how come the government United States let this happen to their Country... ? do they ever open their eyes ?
    The government in China right now they are getting richer and richer. Beside that, plus all other Country getting better too....because, they know how to created more job for their own populations, except U.S just created more problem, the government U.S should look in to this situation, and pay more attention to their populations, make all rule, and try to stop all the companies, which is tried to rip of our and your labor.....I already heard so many complained, please, and please....do not let them cut our benefit when we are working so hard, but doesn't earn no shtttttttt

    Are there any openings where a college degree is not required? I've been in the Commercial Real Estate profession for over 10 years and have been laid off for a year and a half now. I would like to be in a stable environment and grow within. Does work experience count anymore?

    I have owned my own business now for over 30 years and have not seen anything like this.I have never missed a day due to illness and cannot remember being late to an appointment.
    Having said that,I would love to be able to work with the government to have some stability and maybe see what it is like to have benefits.

    I graduated in 2008 with a BS in Information Systems, and began my career change efforts immediately. I'm still looking, and can't get past the experiance requirement. Any tips to sell myself and use life experiances such as building PC systems would be appreciated.

    @ Cricket2009 I ask the very same question. I find this to be the case most often, so how is that entry-level if the employer is asking for several years of experience?

    I like this article and found it very interesting. I am interested in a position as a Paralegal. I am willing to start in an entry-level position and grow with the position. However, what confuses me is when a position says entry-level, why is there a requirement of 2-5 years experience?
