[[wysiwyg_imageupload:92:height=100,width=66]]I am combing through my mental archives, thinking back to Spring of last year when I was first considering working for the Federal Government and am trying to remember what my preconceived notions of federal employment entailed. Coming from a world of high-tech, private industry, it was easy to make a hasty generalization and leap to the conclusion that federal government will be a lot different - not bad or worse - just different.

Yet, after being at the FCC for six months, I can give you the insider’s perspective that almost every day I am surprised and delighted by the quality of the workforce at the FCC.  We have amazing lawyers, engineers, economists and many others who have consistently promoted telecom policy for this country – helping not only keep the best interest of the US consumer in mind, but also helping to shape an industry that has grown to 1/5th of the US economy.  So you can learn more from an “insider perspective,” we’re launching a new continuing feature on Reboot.FCC.gov highlighting some of the great employees of the FCC.  I hope you enjoying getting to know a little more about them and a little more about what your FCC is doing for you.
