I did not leave my job, IBM left me. I was told that they were looking for an "more thoroughly rounded" employee. Funny thing is, I went to the job posting board, after learning of my pending separation and saw over two dozen openings for my position (Costa Rica or India)!

IBM has downsized numerous times over the past 20 years. My project management experience and performance has kept me from being affected in previous years but they decided to eliminate the program management role from my current team this year. I know my ability to bring order to chaos and to deliver on time and on budget would be valued by many employers. I am currently seeking a job where I can make an immediate impact using my project management and organizational skills.
