Working for the FTC has been a great experience. After working as an IT federal contractor, I applied for employment with the agency. I was hired and ultimately advanced into a management position. I’ve had opportunities to grow professionally and form relationships with many people in and outside of the FTC’s IT department.
I have a real understanding of the agency’s big picture and get to see how FTC employees support our country. It’s especially interesting to work in IT at the FTC since we have to lead by example when it comes to issues like privacy and data security. I’ve been excited to see firsthand the progress we’ve made from a technological standpoint.
