Can someone explain to me why so many people like to throw around what grade they are? I think it is a sign of no class, everyone counts no matter what GS grade they currently possess.
My GS grade or job title does not define me; my willingness to be a good public servant for the federal government defines me.
People within the Federal government totally forget about the mission of their agency or department. Your job’s mission should motivate you or living out your dreams and helping people should define you. If you are getting paid great money to help others, then you are truly blessed with a gift. Job titles and salaries can easily fade away, but your integrity will last forever.
