New M.B.A. Job Search Leads Right to the Government's Door

Help Wanted: Government jobs. Low pay, limited prestige, in an aching bureaucracy.

But that was last year's ad -- before a string of failing businesses would require bailouts in the billions from Uncle Sam.

The federal government is hiring, when hardly anyone else is. For job seekers coming out of undergraduate and M.B.A. programs, some with hefty student loans to repay, it offers a potentially secure paycheck, along with health-care benefits and pensions.

The position pays about $50,000 and, in Mr. Figg's case, comes with a $5,000 signing bonus.

That is what I am thinking. Maybe they just low balled it on the article, for the sake of public relations?
