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 believe that I am a great canidate for many areas of work, however most resumes just get shoved into a pile somewhere no where to be found. I have approx 9 years retail experience with 2 years of that being managment. I am willing to work in any area to get my foot in the door and work my way up from there. If anyone is interested, my email is mwoollen86@yahoo.com - I will send my resume if there are job opeings that may be of interest.

I am interested in any media-related government position and do not mind relocating. I do not graduate until this summer, but I like to look ahead. Any information or pointers, please contact me at twpashley@embarqmail.com.

    They are telling all of us that they are hiring vets preferentially but I'm not seeing it in action anywhere. When they cut the F-22 they cost me my job. What else are these professional liars going to say next.

    How disappointing that my field is not one of the entry level positions. I have a Master's and a Ph.D. but cannot find a job because I have very limited experience in the field. How can I get my foot in the door?

    I recieved an MBA about a year ago from the University of Phoenix. However I am having the hardest time of networking to federal employers in an effort of obtaining an entry level position. I just want an opportunity of any kind so that I could one day establish a professional career.
