The work that I do at Booz Allen has an impact on what our government knows and thinks. I may be one small piece of a much larger puzzle, but knowing that I am a part of that puzzle is very humbling.


I  just finished working on a data management and analytics project for National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s GEOINT Professional Certification Program Management Office, and I will soon be developing web-mapping applications for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). My career manager found the DTRA project for me, knowing that it was a perfect opportunity for me to progress my career in the direction I want it to go.


New opportunities are constantly opening up here, and there’s a focus on finding the right people to fill them. When you’re ready to change projects, or when your leadership team sees an opportunity for you to advance your career, you’re encouraged to go for it. There’s no single path to success here. You’re in charge of your own career.


I chose to work at Booz Allen for a variety of reasons, but primarily because of the very successful internship I had here the summer before my senior year. With that, I got to see how the company works and get a feel for its culture. Having heard intern horror stories about being treated as a coffee and lunch runner, I was shocked to see how Booz Allen treated me as an equal.


At last year’s GEOINT Symposium, I was by far the youngest employee working Booz Allen’s booth. It was empowering to know that the senior leaders here fully trusted me to represent the company. In my mind, it proved that Booz Allen truly taps the person they believe to be best for the task or position at hand.

Sound good?
