Do you dream of a better life, higher pay, a challenging position with responsibility and one that takes full advantage of your interests, education, and experience? You can turn your dreams into reality and be one of the many thousands of federal employees each year that are promoted or attain higher level government jobs.
What separates those who want to improve and progress in their careers from those who actually achieve success? The fact is that it’s not enough to dream about promotions, great new jobs, and higher pay; you have to plan a course of action to achieve your goals. The factors that will determine whether or not you succeed are motivation, personal initiative, and taking the steps (ACTIONS) necessary to make your dreams come true.
If you’re not satisfied with your current job or if you’ve been bypassed for a promotion don’t despair, help is out there if you know where to look. You have many options and career paths to pursue in the federal sector. Even if you lack the required education or experience there are ways to obtain skills needed to reach your career goals.
I worked in federal government for over 35 years as an avionics and electronics technician, training instructor, project engineer, computer-based instruction administrator, training program manager, program support manager, and environmental health and safety program manager. Plus I held numerous supervisory and management positions and was responsible for recruiting, rating and interviewing applicants, outreach and hiring. My last government position was technical operations manager at the Pittsburgh International Airport's air traffic control tower for the Federal Aviation Administration. I developed a workbook to help others achieve their career goals.
I wrote Take Charge of Your Federal Career and used the techniques in this book throughout my career to progress from an enlistee making $98 a month in the military in 1969 to retiring above the GS-15 level under the FAA’s core compensation pay system in 2005. Best of all I’m offering career counselors, training departments, and supervisors the opportunity to obtain a case of 30 copies (while supplies last) for just $84, the cost of shipping and handling, to introduce my workbook to those in your agency who desire to progress in their careers. Individual copies can be purchased for $14.95 including free shipping.
