Career and Job Research: Government Jobs and Service Work

Resources for finding a job or researching careers and companies.

Post-Graduate Service

Federal Government

State Government

Though most of the resources listed here are for North Carolina state employment, almost every state has a website that includes a link to employment opportunities or job listings. Sometimes individual state agencies have their own job Web listings (such as the North Carolina State Library). Ramsey Library is also a selective depository for North Carolina government publications.

County Government

County government websites often list job openings available through different departments. County government jobs, like federal and state employment opportunities, are not limited to political administration positions, but also include jobs with Social Services, Parks and Recreation, and county libraries. Look at the Buncombe County website or else search the web for the specific county government you are interested in (for example, "Haywood County, NC Government").
