Is a government job usually more stable than a job in the private sector


Is a government job usually more stable than a job in the private sector?

There are different views on why a government job might be more stable than a job in the private sector. One of them is that it is often harder to fire someone than those working in private sector jobs. Most private sector jobs will fire someone based on non-performance immediately, whereas in the government there are a series of warnings and disciplinary notices that are issued before one is even considered for being fired. In the first two months of 2012, Government employment remained stable and unchanging. The US Government is the nation’s largest employer and in the next two years the number of Federal jobs needing to be filled will reach almost 200,000. Nearly 80% of these jobs will be within five professional fields: Security and protection, medical and public health, Accounting and budget, engineering and science, and program management and analysis.
