Despite some chatter on Capitol Hill about imposing a hiring freeze for the federal government, GovCentral is still confident in sustained employment growth for the next two to three years. This bodes well for job seekers that are looking to start a career in public service or transition from the military or private sector.

Last week we listed the most in-demand federal jobs for November 2010. We wanted to dig a little deeper and see what types of jobs are out there in these fields. In the following pages is a list of occupations that earn over $60,000 and are currently in high demand.

As is the mantra for GovCentral, evaluate your current skill set to see if you meet the requirements for these highly competitive jobs. If you are looking to change job fields or looking to take a step up in your career, consider what colleges, especially online colleges, can offer for you.
