The public sector essentially means government, and includes everything from social services and the management of city parks to military and the foreign service. English majors are well suited for jobs that involve analysis, intelligence gathering, public relations, and human resources.
Some useful websites that might help students find jobs in the public sector include:
- Federal Jobs: Making the Difference
- New York State's Department of Civil Service
- Working for New York City
