2015 Government Entry-level Jobs

You may have heard that entry-level jobs in government related positions have fantastic benefits. While this is often the case, it’s also important for you to understand that jobs in government related fields vary widely from one job to the next. There are many, many different types of positions available, and it is rare for two positions to look exactly the same. You should know, however, that for any government job, you will need to have a squeaky clean background, a sound mind, and a drive that will help you to beat out the competition. If you’ve got all that, then you’re ready to start looking and applying for positions.

To show you just how vast and broad the field is, consider that all of these positions are government positions: police officer, FBI agent, IRS agent, postal worker, transportation security administration worker, foreign service officer, and more. So, don’t automatically assume that all government employees are mayors or congressmen. There are opportunities for people from all educational and work backgrounds, and all walks of life. The trick is simply to discover your unique skills and interests and to use them to find the perfect position for you.

And, if you are looking for high-paying government entry-level jobs that come with plenty of benefits (aren’t we all?), there are certainly a few positions to consider. As a criminal investigator, for example, you could easily earn around $88,174 per year. Or, if you’d like to become an economist, you could take home a nice $94,098 per year. Engineers, financial managers, attorneys, and astronomers also tend to do quite nicely as well, but, in the end, you should choose a job based on what you want to do, not on how much it pays.
