Careers In Government, the largest public sector job board dedicated to matching qualified individuals with challenging and rewarding careers, is pleased to announce Forbes’ top pick for state and local government career websites.
Careers In Government (formerly Jobs in Government) was launched in 1996. It is owned and operated by former public sector and business professionals with extensive experience in government and education, including personnel administration, and both print and online advertising. Having recently undergone a major site redesign, Careers In Government is not only a leader in social media, but offers significant added functionality for public sector employers and job seekers.
Careers In Government combines today’s powerful Internet search technology with a wealth of recruitment, selection and practical job information pertinent to the public sector. The Careers In Government staff understands the unique needs of government and public sector job seekers and employers (from city managers to Police Chiefs). Using every available social media feature, we have brought together today’s brightest and best thinkers to deliver news and information to more than 20 million Americans working, or seeking employment in public sector careers.
Access to thousands of government and public sector job opportunities is provided to prospective candidates without charge. Agency profiles and links to employer home pages help candidates to further evaluate job listings selected on the basis of location, job classification, requirements, salary and other search criteria. Resume posting and forwarding features facilitate job seekers’ efforts to communicate with prospective employers and begin the application process.
Government and public sector agencies with limited funding have historically spent less money than private sector corporations to recruit and hire its workforce. Careers In Government represents an economical method for employers to harness the powerful communication and interactive database search capabilities of the Internet. Neither employer nor job seeker should be forced to compromise their organizational or personnel needs. Job search tailoring can help to insure qualified candidates are suitably matched to agencies on the basis of many of the dimensions both employers and job seekers have identified as essential for success.
Career choices are among the most important decisions we make, affecting us economically, emotionally, physically and intellectually. In the coming months, Careers In Government will be announcing significant partnerships with leading public sector organizations to further solidify its leadership position.
Careers In Government was the first to originate, and we continue to innovate.
