well... if the State actually followed the Headlee amendment and actually fully funded all of their mandates to the local/regional/schools then it probably wouldn't be as much of an issue (other than the State would be more broke than it is)
that being said, a lot of Government jobs are viewed by HR types as administrative/clerical. EMT, Mechanic and Water Sewer guys all have a private equivalency or close enough match.
But yeah, there are definitely a few positions that require specialized certification, experience or both that have a limited pool of qualified applicants.
I'm to the point where my next step may
again be private sector consulting.
