4 Career Ideas if You Want to Work in Public Service

4 Career Ideas if You Want to Work in Public Service
Posted By: Dixie Somers on October 11, 2021

If you're in the process of looking for a new job or just starting to think about what kind of career you want to have in the future, consider these four prospects if you're looking for a fulfilling and meaningful occupation in the public sector.

Environmentalist



Your work is aimed at safeguarding the planet and all of its natural resources, so you'll be doing your part to ensure clean air, clean water, and effective waste management for all citizens. Your job may include conducting scientific research, creating awareness about the environment through education, or working to prevent pollution. To be successful in this position, you'll need patience, creativity, communication skills, and the ability to work independently.

Nurse



You'll have the opportunity to provide medical treatment, education, and comfort to patients in a variety of settings ranging from hospitals to school clinics. A career in nursing requires compassion, problem solving skills, time management skills, and attention to detail. To excel in your work, you'll need to be flexible when dealing with different types of people. There's no limit to the skills and knowledge you'll be exposed to as a nurse, so look into public service nursing as a way to continue your education and find the career that fits you best.



Security Guards



href="https://www.citywatchsecurity.com.au... guards are often involved with protecting property and high-profile individuals, which can allow you to ensure the safety of millions of people, depending on where you work. You'll be trained to assume a position of authority, so you might even be able to use your knowledge to influence civic issues. Security guards are often required to have high-level security clearances, so you'll also have access to confidential information. Your ability to work through high-pressure situations will come in handy when you occasionally have the daunting responsibility of protecting the public.

Social Worker



Working as a social worker can give you ample experience, which will make it easier for you to find a job when you're ready to move onto another position within the public sector. Whether you want to help vulnerable adults or rehabilitate criminals, this career path will give you ample opportunities to contribute to the community. You'll need to be articulate, patient, and interested in solving problems. A career in social work will also allow you to work with families, schools, businesses, or government agencies.

If you're looking for a way to give back to your community or promote change, consider these four career options. While they are all different, they all have the potential to help improve society. You may even get the opportunity to advance within your company and make a real difference in the world.
