Breaking into Local Government

Sep 5, 2013

This guide is the culmination of the work that was done by ICMA member volunteers over a two-year period. Along with case studies that highlight the transition of nontraditional managers into professional administrator positions, it provides a number of resources in the appendix that will help those who aspire to follow the same career path. 

Cases include career changers entering the profession from the private sector, military, and other government sectors. In addition, survey results are included and analyzed reviewing the paths respondents took to enter the profession, transferable skills, reasons for changing, first positions held in local government, and more.
