Government jobs vs. private jobs

Many years back, if you compared public sector with the private sector for jobs, definitely the private sector was the answer as the private sector was always thought to have the highest paying jobs. It is even true nowadays but in the private sector, you are no longer secure as many companies are going bankrupt and anytime, you can lose your job and become unemployed. Your future is less secure in private sector jobs. Even if you are earning a lot right now, you can go broke anytime in the future. For security, public sector is the best place to get a job. However, if you get ANY job in the public sector, the salary will be too low to even provide for the daily grocery of your household. There are some high paying jobs in the public sector which will really build your whole future if you get one of those jobs. However, those jobs are held by the elected officials and it is very hard to get to those positions. These jobs will give you more responsibilities than you can ever dream of but even after your public service ends, you will be in high demand for paid speaking gigs and memoirs. You can write books by sharing the knowledge you will get from the office and earn money for the rest of your life.
