Government & Public Administration
Many of these positions facilitate assistance activities that are critical to the function of American society. Employees in government or public administration careers work to keep our society running and functioning in ways that are nearly invisible to most people. For instance, some of these tasks include safeguarding national borders and supporting diplomatic missions, as well as planning urban developments, administering public programs and analyzing tax policies. This pathway includes careers in governance; national security; foreign service; planning; revenue and taxation; regulation; and management and administration at the local, state, and federal levels.
