Six-Figure Government Jobs to Apply for Today

by SixFigureStart | March 11, 2010

Pop quiz: Name the nation's largest employer. Everyone knows that it's the government, right? And everyone also knows that they've been ramping up hiring ever since the 2008 election and the passage of the stimulus bill. And there's better news: according to Forbes, "Uncle Sam will hire 600,000 people over the next four years." And we're not just talking temporary census hiring either.
