Consider a Career in the Government
Although many people are still choosing to delay retirement, here is what the Bureau of Labor Statistics says about future federal government employment:
In spite of legislative budget cuts, there still will be numerous employment opportunities in many agencies from the need to replace workers who leave the workforce, retire, or accept employment elsewhere...The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) estimates that among all full-time permanent employees in the Federal workforce as of October 2004, 58 percent of supervisory and 42 percent of nonsupervisory workers will be eligible to retire by the end of 2010.
Here are some resources for you if you are considering workforce reentry and want to explore jobs with the government.
