OVERVIEW
My goal is to use my twenty plus years experience as a programmer/analyst either
to find a position as a programmer/analyst or to transition into a business are
a position. I am experienced in learning new software, am very exacting and det
ailed in my work, and know how to handle confidential information appropriately.
As a programmer I worked on a variety of projects involving many different peo
ple and organizations and, of course, developed a very logical approach to solvi
ng problems and improving processes. I take pride in meeting my deadlines and m
aintaining the highest integrity in all I do.
