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.

    Hello everyone, I am a first time user to this site who is asking for your help in finding a career, not a job, in the Criminal Justice field. I am graduating in the next year or so and am constantly worried about finding a job. My primary goal is to work as a Probation officer at any government level whether it is local, state, or federal. If that doesn’t work out, then my second goal is either to work with Homeland Security using my skills as a native Arabic speaker or work as a District Adjudication officer. If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to e-mail me at my personal e-mail address at wgz7bp@aol.com.

    Bcubedreg, I'm new to this website. I'm currently serving in a dual status GS-7 step 7 Production Controller position in the great state of Iowa. I have 27 years of green suit time as of December. I have 16 years of Tech time as of September, bought back active time. Minimum retirement age for my bracket is 56+2 months. I wish to do 30 years in the green suit before I leave service. Looking for Non-dual tech positions but in Iowa they are extremely thin. Have family in Florida so could re-locate if required. Been through a few briefs with the HR folks (mid-career counseling etc.) Looking to stay in the transportation/dispatching aspect of GSA fleet vehicles or similar. Have most time in those areas. What do you think? Any room for an old warhorse green suiter looking to finish out the career?

    If this (construction manager) is such a great entry level job why a I having so much trouble getting feed back from the government agencies. there is not one single job shown under the heading JOBS that I have not had experiance in during the past 30 years,plus I hold an Associates Degree in Civil Engineering. I still think you have to know someone in the beltway or have a relitive in a hi9gh position.

    I need help in the worst way! I am a retired Air Force E-7 with 24 yrs intelligence experience. My security experience expired a few years ago, but I still keep abreast of the career field on the unclas level. I have worked at a GS-2/3 level in the past in order to get my foot in the door of GS service only to resign due to a temporary health problem. I presently have a BS/BA and enrolled in an MBA program. I review the USAJOBS listings weekly since I live in a small town and don't have local access to an agency that can give me any guidance on how to utilize my expertise and experience. I would appreciate any help I can get from your readers. I am available to relocate if necessary.
