Re: Public Sector Potential

You are correct that support jobs are becoming less plentiful. So beyond the technology set that I own I guess I could also say that I am a business analyst, project manager...etc.

Our budgets definitely force us to opt for automation and self service but I don't think that is unique to the public sector.

Overall i think that it is hard to make blanket statements about EDU IT opportunity simply because of the vast difference in funding models.

Its definitely worth taking a look as long as you understand that there can be certain cultural challenges. I have watched a number of talented individuals frustrate themselves out of good jobs because they were constantly comparing everything to private sector.

It takes a certain brand of crazy to actually enjoy working in the political climate sometimes!
