Why Consider a Career with the U.S. Federal Government?

Do you want a rewarding career where you can make a difference in your nation and the world?

How about a career with the nation's largest employer, which employs 1.8 million people—and an employer that will never go out of business?

One where you can advance quickly, because half of the current employees are eligible to retire in the next 5 years?

Where you can double your salary in just 3 years?

Where you can get a job in any part of the country or the world (only 15% of federal jobs are in DC, and 50,000 federal employees work internationally)?

A career that can fit any interest: where you can help people through social service; protect our environment; conduct research; improve our nation’s international relations; provide security to the nation; improve education, and much more?

How about a job that may pay back up to $10,000 for every year of your student loans?

A job where workplace diversity and work-life balance is valued?

A job with fantastic benefits?

If you're hoping to learn more about what government jobs are like and why so many students are considering public service through government, you've come to the right place.
