Great post, it’s true that government doesn’t get the “street cred” it deserves. We all know Government isn’t perfect, but it’s people like you that remind us of the impact (positive) government has on our country, from local to federal. Many amazing things have come from Government (Internet, GPS, etc.). Changing public perception of “government bureaucrats” is a tough job.
I’d tell your colleague to get a job or an internship in Government just to get a foot in the door, eventually she will find something that she truly enjoys. People helping people, it’s powerful stuff!
