Government is getting all the buzz this year, with a new high-profile administration at the top and hundreds of newly vacant and just-created spots that need to be filled from the bottom up. This first edition of the Vault Guide to Government Agency Careers offers a leg-up to would-be government employees, with advice on how to get a foot in the door, how to market oneself in a noncommercial environment, and how to plan for the future (whether as a Capitol Hill insider or in the private sector). The book also contains valuable information on more than 60 different federal divisions. For each, there is a snapshot that details the agency's mission, its history in brief and, most importantly, what types of people will rise within each organization.
