Why We Love Our Job

LOOKING TO EMBARK ON AN EXCITING NEW CAREER?

There are multiple jobs within the Office of Trade and each one is different. Import specialists who work at a port of entry will have very different duties than the attorneys who work in an office setting, but their goal is the same, to support the economy by protecting consumers, businesses and jobs so that you can enjoy the things that you love most. Pretty cool, right?

SURROUNDED BY A DIVERSE GROUP OF TALENT

Our workforce is incredibly diverse. On the one hand, we have lawyers and trade analysts, on the other communication specialists and policy experts. I learn so much from my colleagues every day and am constantly amazed by the talent that surrounds me.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE'S LIVES

 

 

I know what I do matters. The work that I do has the potential to impact policy decisions in the White House and has a ripple effect around the country, and sometimes around the world. I work on issues that matter to me and that impact the global economy. Honestly, it can be overwhelming to think about the significance of what we do here every day. 

EMPLOYEE-EMPOWERING LEADERSHIP

 

 

I really feel supported and empowered by my leadership.
