is it better to take a job with the Federal Government or in the private sector


In these hard economic times is it better to take a job with the Federal Government or in the private sector?

Depending on what type of career you are looking for, a job with the Federal Government is often more stable and rewarding than a job with the private sector. Within the next two years over 200,000 federal jobs will need to be filled in all different areas. The benefits of a government job are also very appealing; government pensions, generous time off for family and vacation, higher than average hourly wage and starting salaries and government health benefits. There are over 80,000 federal employees that retire or leave each year and these positions need to be filled.
