A Public Service Career Resource
This was resource developed by GASPPA to help you in your future career endeavors. This is a compendium of job search sites and links that cover a variety of public service career opportunities in California and beyond.
Unfortunately for us, there is no one-stop-shop to search for public service jobs. However, the provided document provides links to sites that list job opportunities at many different levels in all types of organizations; from entry level student jobs with the state; to city, county, and special district positions; to lobbying and nonprofit opportunities.
