Challenging, fulfilling, rewarding, great benefits, interesting people.
Pros: saving tax payer dollars, doing my part in national defense for the u.s.a
Cons: long hours, seven day weeks, being on call 24 hours a day
I arrive at the office at 0630.I spend about five minutes disabling the intrusion detection systems. Once I have successfully accessed the computer system, I log into NetWeaver and begin running my morning reports. Once my reports are complete, I open Microsoft Excel and run the macros which I developed. Once the macros have successfully pulled in data from reports, I have the basic tool I need to reconcile directorate budgets. Reconciling budgets may take hours.
In addition to reconciliations, I also have to organize travel, arrange meetings, produce PowerPoint presentations, answer phone queries and handle intra-office issues. These issues may include anything from requests for approval, dispute management and problem solving.
In the afternoon, I may have to facilitate meetings and conferences with high ranking military officials of all branches. One of the most challenging and rewarding facets of facilitating these meetings is learning to relate one on one with the varied personalities present.
In addition to having a thorough knowledge of Microsoft products, I am expected to be able to research the rule of law regarding potential new programs. I am also proficient with SAP, PeopleSoft, SharePoint and DBWebsign.
