I am currently holding the position of Director of Information Technology at a firm in Oakland, CA and am looking to relocate to the Seattle Area. While on the surface this may seem relatively easy, just look for an IT job, one of the motivations I have for moving there is a shift in my career.
I would like to leverage my tech experience and management experience, while also bringing to bear my extensive knowledge in the online game industry. My insights here and ability to communicate my ideas clearly to a wide variety of audiences I believe suits me well for a Project Management sort of role.
I am specifically not looking for employment in areas that are code intensive or require extensive database knowledge. While I am certainly capable in both of these areas, it is not my desire to continue working in this sort of capacity.
I would love to get involved in a startup, where people participate in alot of different roles as I am a jack of all trades, my resume reflecting that.
Anyone have any advice? I've been browsing headhunter sites and am not necessarily finding an opportunity that jumps out at me there and says "Yes!"
I'd like to relocate before the end of 2013, if possible.
