Tom Hafer- a senior Financial Manager with the Marine Corps"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!"
Mary Kay Tompa a member of the Senior Executive Service and Financial Manager "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 environment that values and recognizes excellence and provides formal professional development at all levels, including certification and degreed programs."
Steve Straub 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."
