If you’ve been focusing your job search on program management roles, it’s worth considering careers in management operations or program analyst. Across government, the job titles and tracks may differ but if you have a passion for seeing missions succeed, improving efficiencies and implementing solutions, the management and program analyst track may be an ideal fit. Organizations across government, including the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, are looking for a few good managers to help keep their new mission on track.
Monica Courtney, management and program analyst, CISA, mans the performance management program and awards program for the infrastructure security division. Her career background is in human resources, which led to her current management role. But across CISA, management analysts perform a number of jobs.
“One trait that’s important not just for this role, but for any role anywhere is networking,” said Courtney. “We all know the saying it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. I believe it’s what you know and who you know.”
Management careers at CISA
With program analyst career openings across government and industry, an applicant may ask – why CISA? As one of the newest government agencies, CISA offers a real chance for growth and building. Rather than entering into operations that are entrenched, at CISA, management operations is helping the agency, build, advance, and grow.
“CISA is still in its infancy/cradle stage, so it’s still developing, it’s still molding,” said Courtney. “Getting to see it from its inception and seeing the possibilities of where it can go – that in and of itself makes it unique, and I’m very excited to see where it will be in the years to come.”
