So I know that when it comes to planning jobs in the private sector, experience isn't everything... and that the person being a "good fit" with the organization is almost equally important to experience (so long as they meet minimum qualifications and are trainable).
Does this also hold true for public sector (e.g. county, city govt planning jobs)?
I've been wondering because there are quite a few job postings for which I meet the "minimum qualifications" -- but i'm sure there are many people with far more experience than me applying for them too. So i hope they'll be looking at things such as if I'll be a "good fit" with the department... because if it's 99% about experience, then it seems hard to compete for entry/journeyman level jobs when there's also people with 10 years experience applying for them too.
