The government hiring boom continues:

March 23, 2010

CBO seeks professional staff with excellent academic backgrounds and experience in macroeconomics, public finance, health economics, demography, labor economics, financial economics, environmental and resource economics, industrial organization, defense economics, and public-policy analysis. Most staff have graduate degrees, many have considerable experience in a relevant field, and all assume major responsibilities–beginning early in their careers at CBO.

To be fair, the Democrats have had the folks at the CBO working like dogs for the past year analyzing healthcare reform, and so they have probably not had much time for even routine hiring. But it is also clear from the full job descriptions that many of these jobs are related to the passage of ObamaCare. (I suppose it would be overly cynical of me to wonder whether the Majority Leadership promised the CBO a budget/staff increase upon the passage of health reform.)

Of course this is peanuts compared to the 15,000+ people that the IRS will be hiring in the coming months and years to enforce the insurance mandates on individuals and businesses. If you’ve ever had dreams of working for the IRS, hold on, your opportunity is coming soon!
