Working for a local, state, or federal government employer offers many career possibilities for individuals from every academic discipline and interest area. Careers in the public sector are rewarding on many levels: the work you will do impacts the lives of others, there are numerous opportunities for professional growth and advancement, and the pay and benefits are competitive with the private sector.

You may also want a career that serves “the greater good”, which is often in non-profit organizations. Non-profits comprise a multi-trillion dollar sector of the US labor market and employ talented professionals from all academic disciplines and backgrounds. Whether planning fundraising events to benefit cancer research, advocating for human rights legislation, or traveling abroad to aid developing countries, there are multiple career opportunities that allow you to serve a cause you are passionate about.
