myreplyis.com asked in Executive Management 11th Mar '16:What advice do you have for students that want to join public service, rather than enter the private sector?. What can government work teach you that the private sector will not?.

The public broadcaster in Finland, YLE, has a mission in news journalism but also culture, sports and catering for minorities. As the private sector is turning to specific audiences where the revenue is, public service can teach how to cater for the needs of the population and democracy in general, and specifically through the rights of e.g. language and cultural minorities, their interest and prosperity, regardless of business model.View all replies to this question
