Government agency recruiters frequently visit business school campuses. You should attend these events and learn from them what you can do to make yourself more attractive as a government hire. Make sure your resume has all the right info, including any public policy coursework and certifications such as the Certificate in Public Management and Social Innovation. Study an MBA resume sample for more ideas.
Working for the government after earning your MBA has some attractive benefits. While you may earn more in the private sector, government jobs typically require fewer hours and have good benefits such as health and retirement. There is an impressive variety to the government jobs available. You could work for the US Post Office, the Treasury Department, or public health, just to name a few.
If a government job is part of your post-MBA plan, prepare with some applicable coursework. Add an internship or part-time job in the public sphere, and you will be ready for the workforce.
