Having a great boss early in your career can be life-changing. I’ve been lucky to have some bosses that really cared about my career and made sure it didn’t stray off-course. Not only that but they were willing to challenge me and weren’t afraid to give me responsibility. I’ve learned a lot in my short time in federal service thanks to them.
If you aren’t as lucky to have this type of boss, then mentors can fill that gap! Meet a senior leader you admire and follow in their footsteps! Expand the boundaries of your job and make your bosses life easier.
