Government Contract Jobs

Government Contractor Overview


A Government Contractor is a broad term that generally applies to a non-salaried individual employed by the government. These positions are available for all levels of the government, including local, state and federal government. These positions generally do not qualify for the benefits that salaried employees qualify for, and the length of the contract may be anywhere from a few months to several years in length. The positions for contract workers may be for less-skilled labor, such as for data entry or clerical work to senior level positions, such as those related to national security. They may also include contract managers, contract administrators and others.

Government Contractor Education Requirements


Because there are a considerable number of Government Contractor positions available in many different areas of the government, the education requirements can vary considerably. For example, a data entry position may require only a high school diploma. A more advanced position may require a four-year degree, a post-graduate degree, security clearance or advanced certifications with additional training. It is common for administrative positions to require a non-specific degree, but positions related to engineering, information technology, accounting and other areas may require a degree in a specific field.

Government Contractor Job Market


Government Contractor positions are generally available in many fields regardless of the state of the economy. Government jobs are considered to be stable and secure, but budget cuts at different levels of the government can affect the availability of contractor positions. Because these positions are available in many fields, some professionals can easily make a transition between the public and private sectors when contractor positions are not available, and others may consider expanding their options to contractor positions in other areas of the country as needed.

Government Contractor Compensation


The compensation of a Government Contractor can vary significantly. These positions generally may be a fair rate that correlates closely to similar private sector positions. In some cases, they may have a more lucrative compensation package, but they generally lack benefits that you may receive from a salaried position in a related field in either the public or private sector.
