I think you should choose your career based off whatever interest you the most. Once you figure out what you are truly interested in finding a government job shouldnt be difficult because there a lot of different opportunities and positions that need to be filled locally and nationally.
The government has so many varied careers, I suggest you think more carefully about what you want to do! Politics, law enforcement, mail carrying... the options really are mind boggling. Check out www.firstgov.gov and peruse their job listing section. For guidance on what you would be good at, try a free online aptitude test. They aren't 100% accurate, but they could lead you in the right direction.
Well said, Anonymous. I agree. Having an interest in what you do really make a difference. You really do not want to be in a job/career that you hate doing. Jobs are always available. Find the right one for you and find out the requirements to apply for the job. Goverment jobs would require testing so be prepared for those. Keep in mind that when you are ready to apply, you might want to have a couple of jobs to choose from since jobs nowadays are hard compete. Good luck!
Where are in your education level? Have you completed college or about to start it. Start off with volunteering somewhere it interests you. In that way, you can really feel what you want to do when you actually doing it. what are you strongest subjects in school ? what easily comes to you ? and what you really enjoy doing ? If you give more information there are more specific options out there for you. Good Luck!
