Public Sector Careers
Often individuals think of the public sector as just encompassing elected officials or top members of state and federal government. However, right here in Ventura County we are currently facing a shortage of excellent careers in the public sector in local government. This talk explains the different careers available and the career paths for those interested in these positions.
