Information Technology Project Manager

Information Technology Project Manager


I´m an I.T. project manager. I oversee the development
and deployment of large- and small-scale
computer systems that are deployed
throughout the IRS. Every day is different. There´s a lot
of different challenges and opportunities you get, and the decisions that you make
here developing systems, they can and do affect
every single person and business in the country
and in foreign countries, too. So, it´s really
interesting stuff if you sit back
and actually look over what it is that we do in the IRS
at the high levels. The way I came to the IRS
was a little interesting. I was a senior in college,
and I was doing my own taxes. And I went to IRS.gov
to find a form. When I did that, I noticed
that the IRS was hiring. There was a little banner ad
there, and I clicked on it. And I looked at
the various job descriptions, and I clicked on the one
for Revenue Officer and filled out the application. And a few months later,
I started my IRS career. It´s been really rewarding, and currently, at the IRS´s
expense and encouragement, I´m working on a master´s degree
in I.T. project management. One of the great things
about working in the IRS is that there´s
so many job opportunities and so many things you could do that if you want to
completely change your career to go to one of these areas
where the IRS needs people, the IRS will take you
and train you and teach you how to do
that sort of career change. The job that I do now is completely different than
the job I started my career as. And I received training in-house
to become what I do, the I.T. project manager
I am now, and the IRS paid
for all the training and is currently paying for me
to get a master´s degree. The IRS is looking for talented
people that can do the job, and basically,
if you´ve got what it takes, you can move up very fast. I never imagined that I would
have the responsibility I have currently at my age
and what I do. I certainly wouldn´t have that if I was working in
the private sector right now.
