What’s the Best Government Job for You? [Free Training Event]

There are 20 million government jobs
at the Federal, state and local level and it’s hard to know where you belong in the mix.

Even if you like your current job and feel it’s the right fit, you may always be wondering in the back of your mind if the grass is greener at another agency or another level of government.

Or maybe you’re trying to break into a government gig and don’t know where to start!

Wherever you stand in the process, we’d like to help you sort it out.

So GovLoop and Young Government Leaders are excited to announce a FREE training session that we’re hosting with author (“Jobs That Matter”) and career coach Heather Krasna on Wednesday, May 11 at Noon EST. In this one-hour session, Heather will:

  • Guide you through a process to discover which government job (aka “gov gig”) is best for you
  • Help you to identify what motivates you most: mission, job function, or values
  • Share some little-known methods for getting insider information on agencies and careers.


You’ve likely met Heather on GovLoop before as she’s one of our Featured Bloggers. And here’s a bit more about her:

I tried to view this webinar but had technical difficulties. Is there a link to a summary and/or slides of this presentation somewhere?
