One of the largest employers in the United States is the government. There are three branches of the United States government – judicial, executive and legislative. Any job within one of the three is called the federal job.
Out of all the federal jobs, around 15% of jobs are in Washington, D.C. and around 83% of government jobs are spanned in multiple locations across the country and around 2% of jobs are outside the country.
The government has its web portal which is a great starting point to know about the federal agencies and the open positions available at any given time. You can search for jobs with your location preference, the type of job you want and even check for particular department jobs you want to work with.
