Which Government Job Matches Your Private Sector Experience?

Which path is right for you?

GovCentral, with data from USAJobs has a tool to help you can match a public sector job to relevant private sector jobs. But what good does that do to the government job seeker? GovCentral did the hard work for you and sorted through the search tool in order to help you apply your previous outside-of-the-government work experience to your new job search.

This is part of our Government Transition Guide.

Note: Job options are not limited to the listings in this article.

Keep in mind that just as much as work experience plays a part in your career path, your education is the foundation that makes your skills more impressive to government employers.

Suggestion: If you don’t see your job posted, try searching in similar fields or titles. For example, if you are a medical insurance representative your background might also fit in Human Resources and/or Healthcare.
