Thank you for reading my post. Some organizations in industry exercise their ability to be flexible in responding to market conditions which can add some challenge to the job. Industry can also of course come with better pay.

Government though has the reward associated with being a part of the infrastructure that supports so many but is often not fully understood. I enjoyed working at the Federal Reserve in check processing. No one really knew what I did but they knew that their checks cleared their accounts and their deposits were handled correctly 99%+ of the time. It’s a good feeling knowing we can be a part of that.

I guess industry is to profit focused and that isn’t what moves me.
