Top 25 Cities for Your Government Career

Now more than ever, it’s important to get the best bang for your buck and live in a high job-growth area. And there’s no question about it — when it comes to economics, not every U.S. city is created equally.

Why chase a great salary if your rent swallows most of it, unemployment is skyrocketing and you spend two hours a day just to get to and from work?

And, which cities offer the most job opportunities in 2010 and beyond?

GovCentral has come up with the top 25 — and some may surprise you!

    ajtijerina-sorry, but if you need a job quick you are looking in the wrong place! When it comes to hiring, the government is anything but quick. Did anyone check the crime rates for some of the "Top" cities? They couldn't pay me enough to raise my child in some places. However, there are other places to look that people don't usually think of as a "government job" . Don't forget to check the USDA, US Forest Services, Army Corps of Engineers, and the list goes on. Also, a lot of these other agencies don't just hire in the big cities. There are opportunities out there for us country folks as well.

    Irritating to read. Just list the darn cities instead of one click at a time.

    Great ... sounds good ... Now the Question is ?? ... How does one get one of these jobs?? I, Unfortunately went into "Hi-Tech" right after H.S. School & directly after DeVry. Strike #1 - No ex-military experience. Strike #2 - i don't "know anyone" in the Federal Government clique(s).

    It says "see where your city is listed". I'm so far back in the sticks, I'd have to move to another state to get an interview. Other than that, the article was very informative.
