After a year of dealing with personnel shortage, the state and federal governments finally started recruiting new employees and filling key positions near the end of 2017. The big recruitment set the tone for job markets across the country, including the job market here in Louisville.
Some government jobs are more popular than the others. In Louisville in particular, certain positions offer better rewards and more opportunities. Experts believe that 2018 will be an interesting year for those seeking careers in federal and state governments as more jobs are being made available to applicants.
Administrative Jobs Available
The majority of government jobs available in Louisville and other parts of Kentucky are administrative jobs.
These jobs offer great rewards and bright career paths for qualified candidates. There are several requirements to meet to qualify for an administrative position, but candidates will be able to select the field of work they want to enter thanks to the wealth of options on the market.
Administrative Coordinator is a popular role in many government agencies and offices. The main task of an administrative coordinator is evaluating programs, procedures, and policies implemented across the organization.

Administrative jobs involve dealing with challenges such as budgeting, planning, executing, and evaluating. It is a management job that requires good organizational and leadership skills. Candidates are expected to have a minimum of two years of experience in project planning, project management, or similar positions.
It is also interesting to note that there is a big increase in demand for compliance officers.

It is their duty to make sure all government operations meet the correct health and safety standards.
The compliance officer and compliance manager roles are not only rewarding, but allow candidates to be more involved in various operations. For instance, there is a department in the Louisville Metro Government whose compliance officers deal with hate crimes and discrimination in employment, housing, and other parts of the community.
The city is also recruiting compliance officers in other fields, making this line of work one of the most widely available. Candidates entering this field have a lot of opportunities to grab.

The major recruitment cycle will help businesses and professionals grow and contribute more to the society. A bigger labor market means higher buying power and better consumption; these elements will further reduce the job gap and allow more people to regain their financial independence.
