|“My career within the Navy financial management
community has spanned a gamut of disciplines from budget analysis/formulation
and fiscal policy, all the way to project management and congressional liaison.
Along the way I was constantly challenged to develop new skills and techniques
to stay abreast of evolving technologies, military concepts and business
process improvements. It has been a very rewarding and intellectually
stimulating career, one ripe with ever-changing requirements and opportunities.
For those who crave new challenges and unlimited possibilities within the
financial management field--this is definitely the place to be!”

|“I chose public service for a career because I
believe it is a meaningful and worthwhile endeavor and the mission of the
Department of the Navy is critical to our national security. Within the
financial management community, there are great opportunities to be responsible
for high dollar value and challenging accounts at the entry level, as well as
continuous opportunities to assume positions of increasing responsibility,
authority and visibility throughout your career. The Department promotes an

||a senior Financial Analyst
|“Coming out of college, I never expected the
numerous and varying opportunities that being a financial analyst with the
Department of the Navy has afforded me. I expected the stereotypical
"government job" were I would push paper and have little opportunity to make a
difference. Luckily, I have been exactly wrong. All of the positions that I
have held with the Department have been dynamic, challenging and rewarding.
Most importantly, all of my positions have directly supported the selfless
sailors and marines who defend us all. It is wonderful to be able to go home at
night and know that what I do makes a difference to the men and women who serve
all of us. I definitely made the right choice and now cannot see myself doing
anything else for a living. So if you want a job that is not only
professionally fulfilling but that more importantly really matters -- Navy
financial management is the right choice.”
