You don't have to be Rudy, Hillary or Obama to seek a job in the U.S. government. CNN.Money.com reported that government employment opportunities are greatly increasing. A new study by Partnership for Public Service (a nonprofit group) says that the feds are about to start looking for employees to fill 193,000 United States government jobs. The openings - including federal government part time jobs - will occur between now and 2009.
The main causes of these government employment opportunities are the expected retirement of 33% of the federal workforce and the ever-growing war on terror. Additions will include 47,897 jobs at the Department of Homeland Security, 35,505 positions at the Department of Defense as well as 27,243 border patrol agents, customs agents, food inspectors, criminal investigators and TSA airport screeners. However, government employment opportunities are not limited to US Government security jobs.
