Private sector. Public sector. Nonprofit sector. Opportunities abound in all employment industries and sectors for transitioning servicemembers, veterans, and military spouses. Given the core value of service to country, public sector work may make for the right fit.  

We all know about DoD, VA, and DHS at the federal level, but have you considered a career in local government? If not, maybe you should! Like your military service, it’s a purpose and a calling greater than yourself. 

Throughout the public sector, particularly at the community level, you will be playing a vital role and making a real difference in people’s lives. And, you have exactly what it takes! Based on your experience, education, and unique skill sets, you are competitive for employment opportunities across a wide spectrum, in positions such as city manager, county commissioner, engineer, first responder, and more.


Join MOAA and special guests from the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) for a special webinar event designed to help you understand (and secure) career opportunities in local government. Lynn Phillips, ICMA’s Veterans Programs Manager and a retired Army lieutenant colonel, will facilitate as a panel of experts and leaders explain why a career in local government makes sense for anyone with military experience, identify ways for you to find and take advantage of local government job opportunities, and share unique insights about their transition from uniformed service into local government.
