"Anyone who flies a U.S. aircraft, makes national policy decisions, fights wars, locates targets, responds to natural disasters," or even navigates with a cellphone relies on the NGA, Amanda notes, adding, "There is no typical day. That's why I enjoy this job — our day is always changing." The position also offers options for choosing her career direction. "There are lots of different opportunities and training available within the agency," Amanda says. "That's one of the great things about this job. We're constantly working with supervisors to help us meet career objectives we might have."
