Government Job Finder, 3rd edition

Conduct a balanced, savvy job search: Greatly enhance your chances of getting a job in local, state, or federal government by employing a balanced job–search strategy. Discover all the different job search strategies and the types of resources needed to implement each of them as reported in the first chapter of the Government Job Finder book, published in its entirety. Filled with timely tips to maximize your job hunting results.

While the federal government gets most of the attention from job seekers, it has less than 3 million civilian employees. There are over 14 million jobs in local and state government — and millions of them do not require a political sponsor to get hired.

“An expanded and even better edition of a book we already rated “tops.” This fact–filled book tells where to find job ads, directories of potential employers, employment services, and salary information for 80 occupations in government agencies. A second section lists leads to government jobs in various states. There is no better job information book for the money.”
— Career Opportunities News, Nov/Dec 1998

Safely using the Internet in your job search: The newest job search strategies involve using the Internet and bulletin board services to increase your chances of finding a job. But, so far, the hoopla far exceeds the reality. According to Richard Bolles, author of What Color is Your Parachute?, your chances of finding a government job via the Internet are only one percent, unless you're in the computer industry where your chances soar to 20 percent. Discover all the different elements to an online job search, including their limitations and how using some resume databases can get you fired from your current job. This is particularly helpful information if you are relatively new to the Internet. This is chapter 2 of the Government Job Finder in its entirety.

“You could spend weeks in the library or online trying to compile the information packed into this book. If you want to work in municipal, state or federal government, start here.
