The need to deal with increasingly diverse policy issues and a coming wave of baby boomers' retirements highlight the importance of strategizing about federal recruitment and hiring. A clear understanding of factors that affect people's choice to join the government is essential to plan effective strategies. Using a longitudinal data set and controlling for demographic factors, this study examines the relationship between the probability of choosing a government career and personnel policy factors including job fairs, governmental image, and health insurance. A fixed-effect analysis of individuals' choices finds that these policy factors do not have statistically significant effects on sector choices, suggesting that personal, intangible factors matter more. Further research is needed to identify these factors
