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.
