Rock Stars in the Public Sector
This week on Hey! I Want Your Job, Michele catches up with Rachel Fisher to learn about life in the public sector: the UK government, to be exact. As Deputy Director of Land Use Policy at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, she talks "urbanist Twitter," the shift in several industries to remote work, and recruiting in a job market less and less bound by geography.
Rachel has some specific tips about how to network effectively for the long-term and what she's looking for as a hiring manager in government. Along with her own resume pet peeves and the role of Super Grover in her professional development, she talks breaking into the civil service at a senior level and the right and wrong way to make the pivot between public and private sector work.
