I n Consideration of Employment Opportunity within your organization

M y current employer is Entergy. I am currently seeking opportunities with well established companies.

F or over 30 years, I have been in a unique position that presents many opportunities to explore and develop new technologies, work with all levels of the organization and gain expertise with a wide variety of PC and server based software and hardware. This is 20 years of (computer) experience, with one of the largest electric utility companies in the U.S.. Having responsibilities, expertise and experience in the design, development, implementation and support for a wide variety of software on a variety of platforms, as well as presentation and facilitation skills, I frequently provide management with recommendations and presentations on various projects. Consequently, I am also frequently sought as a resource by other organizations within Entergy Services for my expertise. This usually takes the form of team participation and/or leadership rolls. However, I am most often sought out for my abilities to quickly design, develop and implement innovative solutions that take advantage of newer technologies. By developing and maintaining such a flexible skills set, I have positioned myself to quickly adapt new strategies to meet changing organizational needs.

I look forward to having the opportunity to meeting with your organization to discuss how I might fill your organizations needs. I am certain that, given the opportunity, you will find that not only do I have many desirable skills, I have the attitude and interpersonal skills that demonstrate a personal and professional commitment to doing my very best for the organization I work for. Until then, please don’t hesitate to call should you have a need for additional information.
