How to Find Your Next Job

If you’ve been following GovExec.com closely over the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed a new link in the upper right corner of every page on the site. Its one-word description pretty much says it all: “Jobs.”

The link leads to our new job listings section, featuring a wide range of current opportunities for which those with experience working in government are likely to be qualified. Some of the openings are in federal agencies. Others are at the state and local level, and still others are in the private or non-profit sectors.

The job board is not intended to compete with USAJobs, the official federal job website. Rather, it’s designed to highlight opportunities in various sectors that might be appealing to members of our audience. Current jobs include everything from consulting positions at major federal contractors to chief information officer jobs at different municipalities. More are being added all the time, and the section will evolve based on how users interact with it.

To create the job board, we partnered with the folks at JobTarget, a firm that specializes in creating employment sites for niche audiences. They work with thousands of trade and professional associations and businesses. JobTarget will maintain our employment section, keeping its focus on jobs for which our readers are likely to be qualified and interested.

We hope you find the new section useful.
