There are two ways to progress your career in federal IT:
- Make up work for others to do on the fly
- Usually this involves process or procedure - these are your best weapons for this maneuver
- Sit on meetings all day to listen as others do what you made up for them to do
- Then make up new things to do that have nothing to do with the progress you're trying to make
It's the way it's always been done. Why change?
