Careers in government. Federal, state and local government agencies offer extensive employment opportunities. At the federal level, the departments of the Treasury, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, and State are the largest employers. The types of jobs in government agencies range across the fields of agriculture, business, finance, international trade, transportation, urban economics, and utilities. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment for economists is expected to increase as fast as the average through 2005.
