As a veteran and serving Army reservist, I wanted a career where I could use the skills and knowledge I’ve gained from my military experience. When I started at Booz Allen as a strategic communications lead, I was ready to accept that maybe my unique military skills wouldn’t translate the way I hoped they would—but they did.
Not only has Booz Allen tapped into my expertise, my team has challenged me in ways I never thought possible. They’ve shown me how I can have a greater impact on the world around me.
Here are three reasons why Booz Allen is a perfect match for me (and could be for you too):
1. I work with some of the best people in the world.
I’ve trusted my life with my fellow service members, and I know I can trust my career with Booz Allen. I’ve found my work family here. Whether it’s raw technical ability, critical thinking, or sheer motivation, my colleagues do it all. There isn’t a problem that the people here can’t solve, and I’m proud to be a part of it.
2. I’m offered opportunities to grow.
To be happy at work, I know I need change, challenges, and the space to grow. Whether it’s broadening my network through internal opportunities, attending some of the best developmental training I’ve ever taken, or personal growth through education reimbursement, Booz Allen has exceeded my expectations.
To date, I’ve led and supported some remarkable firm capabilities and explored training ranging from change management to leadership development. Most recently, Booz Allen supported me as I completed my M.B.A and provided me with time off and tuition assistance that made this goal a reality.
3. I’m here for a career, not a contract.
This is a recurring theme here and something that really sets the firm apart. In my time at Booz Allen, I’ve seen contracts around me come and go. Each time, our leadership has reached out to employees to make sure they know their position at the firm is safe. No matter what happens with a contract, I’ve always felt secure knowing I get to continue my career here.
