A Guidebook for Career Changers
ICMA Task Force on Breaking into Local Government
Breaking into Local Government
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.

This is beautifully written handbook for local leaders and program implementers. A must to read for health professionals and public health servants.
