So you want to work in government

If you aspire to civil service employment and putting your skills to work for the greater good of your fellow citizens, consider all options, and that includes contracting. Yes we know, it’s different in the private sector, but consider this:

  • Government jobs are getting hard to come by on all levels. At the federal level, 11,000 employees have been shed so far in 2017 by the Trump Administration.
  • If you get on with the right contracting company that provides competitive compensation and benefits, business stability and advancement potential, you can have a long-term professional career. 
  • A contracting job can allow you to test the waters or try out different agencies and functions without a long-term commitment.

The following LAC Federal government contracting positions are temporary, some with benefits and some without. If you need experience or want to give a federal government work setting a try, we encourage you to apply:
