Recent statistics showed that more government positions are being created across the United States. CNS News reports that 73 percent of new civilian jobs developed between June 2012 and November 2012 were in the government sector. Additionally, there were 19,938,000 workers employed by local, state and federal governments in November.
In the same five-month period since June, data also revealed that U.S. governments increased their staffs by 621,000. The new jobs display the expansion of the country's economy, and more government positions could become available to qualified professionals if the nation continues to recover from the economic recession of the late 2000s.
Many government employees recently stated that they were satisfied with their current positions. According to The Washington Post, a survey of two million government agency staff members showed that 60.8 percent of workers were satisfied with their jobs in 2012. Meanwhile, government agency leaders are focused on continuously improving employee engagement.
"We take these results very seriously," Danny Werfel, an official with the Office of Management and Budget, told the news source. "We need to understand where we can do better."
