Resource Management-Lead/ Mission IT Lead, Herndon, VA - February 16, 2013
Our job in a nutshell, is to staff openings for corporate positions and contracted goverment programs. My team and I were tasked into staffing openings across multiple divisions within the company, on long and short term programs/positions. Management gave me flexibility to run my team, and to staff according to the needs of each division. Sotera was a unique place to work, because all of the internal employees were very close, and developed personal relationships outside of work. The hardest part about this job was the constant changes. We nearly tripled in size over a two year timeframe, but changes became a more prevalent occurence while working there, so this was easy to overcome. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing the "fruits of my labor". We were partenered on a massive Army contract for many years in Afghanistan, where we were tasked with staffing support roles downrange. Many of the individuals that I personally brought on board, made a significant impact in support downrange, and many warfighter lives were saved due to their direct efforts.
