Can you hear the Call to Serve?
Want to change to the world? Bet you didn't know that helping other people through public service is what the federal government is all about . . . Over the next few years, as the Baby Boomers retire, close to one million federal positions in all fields will be available. The federal government wants to get more young Americans involved. How? Hundreds of agencies, commissions, labs, projects, boards and offices either are or will soon be hiring for just about any job you can imagine.
The Best Places to Work rankings are the most comprehensive and authoritative rating and analysis of employee satisfaction and commitment in the federal government. The 2012 rankings are the seventh edition of this ongoing series, following the 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011 versions.
