How to get to the civil service
If you are a student, then try to get a practice in a public institution. As a rule, universities themselves offer students an internship in public institutions. However, if the university does not want to help you, then you will be able to find such a practice on your own. Visit the website of any state institution and call the personnel department. Surely there is a place for a student there, because you don’t have to pay. If you recommend yourself well, then you will be able to work there after graduation.
An experienced specialist or graduate who has not completed an internship at a state institution can try to search for vacancies of such institutions on job search sites. They are usually a little, but they are found. If you choose this path, then you should pay attention to the site.www.superjob.ru. since there these vacancies are most common.
Visit also the websites of government agencies. On these sites, as well as on the sites of companies, there are vacancies. However, to get settled, you will have to go through not just an interview, but a competition for filling a vacant position. It differs from a regular interview in that you have to collect quite a lot of documents (including a medical certificate), complete a detailed questionnaire, and prepare for the actual competition. It is an interview in which you will need to demonstrate not only your professional training, but also knowledge of the Federal Law “On State Civil Service” and other regulations that govern your field of activity.
Be prepared for the fact that in some state institutions there are very high competitions for the lowest positions. However, so in many prestigious firms. It may also happen that a competition is arranged in advance “for a certain person”, but still this is not always the case.
The process of employment in the civil service is quite long. After passing the interview can make a decision up to a month. As an applicant, you should call the personnel department from time to time and be interested in the results.
