Government Jobs to Apply for Today

leave a comment »


Pop quiz: Name the nation’s largest employer. Everyone knows that it’s the government, right? And everyone also knows that they’ve been ramping up hiring ever since the 2008 election and the passage of the stimulus bill. And there’s better news: according to Forbes, “Uncle Sam will hire 600,000 people over the next four years.” And we’re not just talking temporary census hiring either. Forbes were good enough to put together a list of positions you should apply for right now—and all of them pay well over six figures. But when they say “right now,” they mean it: the application date for some of the positions is as early as the end of this week. Here’s their list in full:
