By fall of 2012, we estimate that the federal government will hire nearly 273,000 new workers for mission-critical jobsâ€”positions considered crucial by agencies to fulfill their essential obligations to the American people.
The good news is that these jobs cover almost all occupational fields and issue areas, and are located around the world. They include doctors, nurses, pharmacists, law enforcement and immigration personnel, accountants, auditors, lawyers, information technology specialists, engineers, program managers, administrators and professionals in many other important job categories.
The Partnership for Public Service is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to revitalize our federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works.
