Words of wisdom
“As we come out of the Great Recession, state and local governments are going to step up their hiring. This is one reason Careerbuilder has reported that public administration is one of the top 10 fastest growing majors on college campuses (up 33% since 2010). The post baccalaureate certificate in public sector management is a good way to take advantage of this moment to enter or advance in the field.”
