When it comes to our national security work, we can’t always tell you the exact missions you’ll be supporting or your precise office location—although if you have a high-level clearance, you already know the answers. But do you know what Booz Allen can do for your career?
Booz Allen supports multiple prominent government agencies through our expertise in consulting, analytics, digital solutions, engineering, and cyber. The team has diverse backgrounds and perspectives and one overarching job description. “I solve problems,” says Mike B., a consultant in the industry for 13 years. “I apply unbiased and structured thinking to challenges.” Those challenges include helping clients build rockets, create imagery for analysts, facilitate coordination across agencies, and gather global intelligence.
Where will you fit in? Well, that’s up to you.
“The difference between Booz Allen and other companies is that they’re recruiting for a contract. We’re hiring for a career,” says Recruiter Sherrie McCaskey. Sherrie defines the people who thrive here as entrepreneurs at heart. “If you need a checklist of what to do, this won’t work for you. But if you want to explore options, learn different technologies, and apply your knowledge with a community of experts behind you, there are no limits.”
Wherever you go and whatever you do, our development keeps up. “The company trains you to solve problems,” Mike says. “They rotate you across projects so you bring depth of experience to the table.”
Be forewarned: You’ll work hard. “It’s not enough to ask what the solution is,” Mike says. “You need to ask what’s the second, third, fourth solution, and then make them happen. But people don’t do it because it’s easy—they do it because of the mission. And Booz Allen is close to the mission.”
Laura Yoeckel-Kelly, who leads one of our prominent national security accounts, agrees, “We’re working behind the scenes on events that the rest of the world learns about on the news at night. We’re helping to keep the U.S. safer.”
So while the details of our national security work stay behind closed doors, the opportunities are wide open. If you’re looking for a mission-focused career and the chance to empower change, Booz Allen is the place for you.
