Casey Coleman, chief information officer, General Services Administration, shares career advice in this FedMentors interview for FedScoopTV.

Excerpt:

“My first government job was at GSA, 11 years ago. I was the deputy associate administrator for the Office of Citizen Services, and it was a very exciting opportunity and the thing I learned from that is that the government does work on a scale that is really unparalleled almost anywhere. The opportunities to be responsible for a program and to be able to do something that really impacts the public and the mission of the organization in a positive way, was a great first federal experience.”

Hemanth Setty, chief technology officer, Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, shares career advice in this FedMentors interview for FedScoopTV.

Excerpt:

I’ve been in the federal for the past 17 years, which includes 14 years as a contractor. For the past three years, I’ve been with the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board as a chief technology officer. Keep in mind, as CTO, we’ve been working on some cutting-edge technologies at the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board. What I have gained in the federal is working with my peers and understanding leadership qualities and working with some great, amazing people who are committed to the country. Moreover, I take pride in working for the federal because that gives me the drive and energy to give something back to the country. Of course, the first thing I would say is passion: You should love what you do. When you’re working for the federal, you’re doing some public service, and you should be committed to that.

Chuck McGann, chief information security officer, Office of the CIO, U.S. Postal Service, shares career advice in this FedMentors interview for FedScoopTV.

Excerpt:

My first government job was in local law enforcement. I was a patrolman of a small town in central Massachusetts called the Brimfield Massachusetts Police Department. What I learned from that job was that you have to be able to read people; you have to be able to deal with people. Some of the things you learn on that job is that not everything is as it seems to be. What people may say is their issue is not necessarily their issue, so what you start to learn is to dig into the information you’re presented. Now that was first, and then I went on to be the Postal Service CISO and I came into Postal as an IT manager. I had a background in IT and I’ve always worked a couple of jobs at the same time – I was in local law enforcement and information technology. I came to the Postal Service, thinking, from the private sector to the public sector, I’m going to work with the best of the best. That wasn’t really the case – they were good, but some of the best people I’ve worked with were in the private sector. But as we’ve grown in the federal space, working in the postal space, we’ve grown better.

Robert Palmer, director, information assurance, Department of Homeland Security, shares career advice in this FedMentors interview for FedScoopTV.

Excerpt:

My first government job was actually as a contractor supporting DOD in requirements analysis. What I learned from that, being grounded in requirements is important, and it really keeps you centered on the mission and what the actual necessities are associated with the mission. Especially in IT security, we have to ask ourselves quite often, why are really we doing this? What are the actual requirements that we’re trying to meet?

I actually started out as a teacher early in my career, and I feel like that skill or the development of that skill has helped me relate with people, understand how to motivate folks, which as you progress in your career becomes more and more valuable in understanding how to lead people through tasks, projects, et cetera.

You have to understand there is an eco-system around you to support you as a federal employee – everyone from the people that you may work for, that may work for you, the contractors and or their products and services that support you as a fed – all of those folks are there to support the mission, and thus, your role in that mission.
