A nice idea! Two things for those interested in government jobs:

(1) Several federal agencies (e.g. the CIA) don't use USAJobs. These agencies often have positions which are nice fits for philosophers.

(2) Don't forget that there are jobs with state and municipal governments, as well. So if, for example, there's a particular city or part of the country you want to live, it's worth figuring out where the relevant governments advertise their jobs.

Hi, Tom2! Thank you for sharing both points. I may try and incorporate them into occasional newsletters posts. I remember looking at jobs for the state of Alabama a few months ago and seeing they were looking for historians - I think that is probably true in other states, too.
