Business is Booming in the Public Sector

5 fast-growing government jobs you need to know about now.
By Yahoo Education Staff

Since the start of the recession, the employment outlook has been grim: layoffs, cutbacks, and unemployment numbers dominate the news. But there's one place where the picture is much brighter... the public sector.

Government jobs are growing. Even during the economic downturn, the public sector is expected to add almost 200,000 positions in the next two years alone, according to the non-profit Partnership for Public Service.

Working for the government can be a savvy career move, but it's also appealing to those who want to serve their country. In fact, part of Barack Obama's campaign for president was a call to greater public service.

So which public sector jobs - whether at the federal, local, or state level - are growing, and how can you take advantage of these opportunities?

Check out these five fast-growing public sector jobs and then start training for a new career in public service today.

1. Database Administrators

2. Firefighters

3. Pharmacy Technicians

4. Detectives and Criminal Investigators

5. Correctional Officers
