One aspect of federal employment many people forget is that an individual can have multiple careers by working at several different agencies and still retain all the retirement and job security benefits of working for a single employer. A Gen Y graduate can start as a computer tech in Portland Maine for the Navy, manage a third world tech development program in Asia for the State Department, and retire as a CIO for Transportation in DC. Only a very few private sector employers (GE?) offer a similar range of opportunities and ability to progress from one challange to the next within a single employment umbrella.
