Job Hunting Handbook for Local Government Professionals

Through our continuing efforts to contribute to the local government profession, Bobbi Peckham was appointed to an ICMA National Task Force with a mission to produce a handbook that would be useful to individuals at all levels as they chart a course for their professional career in local government. The Handbook also discusses what to expect from Executive Recruiters and lists sample interview questions, job-hunting resources, and what to do in the first 100 days on the new job. We believe this Handbook is a valuable resource to individuals at all stages of their career. It will be especially helpful to the Next Generation, as we encourage, coach and mentor them.
