In the media, government employees are cast like they are a different species. Living underground in caves, we speak a different language (bureaucratize), have different morals (obscurity), and generally make your life difficult.
One of the most interesting things I’ve found working in public service is the diversity of the public service. I’m particularly interested in what people do after work.
In my five years, I’ve met a number of interesting govies including:
-World Series of Poker player
-Creator of largest drag race community in world_
-Owner of hair dresser and two restaurants
-Professional jazz singer
-Owner of blinds company
-National flag-football champion
What do you do outside of work? Any cool skills/hobbies?
