In Fulton County, Georgia, local governments are freeing up funds so that they can add crew members to their staffs. According to The Associated Press, Fulton County lawmakers recently ended contracts with outside lobbyists to save $400,000, and government officials could use these funds to hire more professionals to support their departments. ??

By employing outside lobbyists, government agencies received insight into certain communities. However, eliminating expenses related to hiring representatives gives government departments more resources to spend in other areas, and these agencies could target qualified professionals to fill in-house vacancies.

Recent data shows that more government jobs could become available throughout the United States in 2013. Reuters reports that many business experts are expecting steady employment gains in many U.S. sectors in January. The national economy could add 160,000 positions this month, thanks in part to increasing investments from employers around the country.??

If government agencies allocate more resources toward recruitment, these departments could noticeably improve their operations. Agency employees can provide reliable support to ensure that their respective departments meet the needs of their constituents.??
