The City of Levelland asks:
Have You Ever Considered a Career in Local Government?
As a whole generation of Baby-Boomers begins to retire, we in local government are searching for energetic learning-oriented entry level workers and talented second or third-career workers. Public service is a wonderfully fulfilling career for a number of reasons:
1. MEANINGFUL, CHALLENGING WORK
Local government service is inherently meaningful because our work is related to building and improving communities.
2. FINANCIAL BENEFITS
Local government service offers salaries that are now competitive with the private sector and benefits that are often better.
3. STEADY DEMAND FOR SERVICES
Another reason to consider local government is that the public needs, wants, and demands municipal services. While local government may have to cut programs from time-to-time because tax revenues decline, the demand for services is quite steady.
4. LEARNING ABOUNDS
Local governments operate in a very dynamic environment. Simply put, we are looking for all types of people who provide "learn-how" as well as "know-how" to our public organizations.
5. PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES
Local government needs entry level workers as well as those considering second or third careers. Consider local government if:
- You want meaningful and challenging work
- You want to make a difference and build and improve communities
- You want a competitive salary and good benefits
- You are interested in learning.
