Rewarding career of Service to Nation
Senior Personnel Management Officer, Adjudicator (Former Employee) – Ft. Sam Houston, San Antonio, TX – March 1, 2017
A career in the United States Army was extremely rewarding and fulfilling. It provides a feeling of serving something larger than yourself, and a great sense of self-sacrifice, and giving to the nation, and the world. I learned how to be a leader, how to influence, motivate and train people, how do deal with diverse cultures, and manage expectations of a wide variety in an extremely fluid and complex environment. I learned project management skills in a wide variety of disciplines, to include, operations, Human Capital, Logistics, Administrative duties, cultural and religious affairs, etc. The hardest part of the job was leaving it. The most enjoyable part was the relationships that you can build and the ability to influence people, their behavior and to motivate them to be their best. I enjoyed the Army's workplace culture of organization, structure and goal oriented achievement.
The ability to lead people in a common cause
