WASHINGTON POST
— The career pivot is the ultimate test of self-reinvention – Susan Svrluga  (DIERSEN: GAO audits IRS. In 1980, after working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $79,563-$90,173, I transferred to GAO. Because I was an old (31) non-veteran White male Republican who complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, the Democrats who ran GAO forced me to accept an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO.  To justify that pay cut, they ignored the fact that much of what I had done for IRS was very similar to what I would be doing for GAO including fact gathering, interviewing, summarizing and analyzing data, investigating, report writing, and developing recommendations.  My Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were furious when I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981 and that I became a licensed CPA in 1981.)
