Working in public policy and public service means more than working for the government. It’s a connection between nonprofits, the sciences, universities, NGOs, the private sector, and governments as well. Employment in any of these organizations often involves working for the public good. These are opportunities that offer excellent pay and benefits, numerous choices of where to work in the United States and around the world, and resources to advance with further training and education.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics provides information to help you evaluate public policies on healthcare, retirement benefits, the minimum wage, workforce education and training, economic development, workplace safety, monetary policy, consumer spending, and other topics that affect the well-being of American workers, retirees, and their families.
