Economy Rockford: Private Sector Jobs - Pros and Cons

If you are looking for a job right now, it might be tough to navigate through the local job market. However, if you go in with a plan and knowing what type of company you would like to work for, could make your search a lot easier.

23 News Jobs expert LoRayne Logan says both the public and private sectors have advantages. Working for the government often means more job security, better insurance and bigger retirement benefits, but you could be stuck in that job longer. Going the private route usually gives you more room to move up the ladder, pay tends to be higher and raises are often easier to get because the decision isn’t subject to the public sectors governmental rules and regulations. However, Logan points out, it is often more difficult to get a job in the private field.

Careers in the public sector include fields like law enforcement, social work, and teaching. The private sector involves most businesses, services, and industries.
