Systems Analyst

Ellipsys
Jack-of-all trades role in a small software consulting start-up. Programming, consulting, implementation assistance, and training to clients in chemical and petrochemical processing industries. Also responsible for staff recruitment. This job was sort of the mirror image of my previous role--I still straddled the personal (recruiting) and technical (everything else), but didn't have any responsibilities that combined those skills.

Assistant Director

Yale University
Career counselor and pre-medical/pre-law advisor to Yale College students. This position also included web page design and other IT tasks. With this job I straddled the line between the personal and technical, but the tasks were really two separate jobs--to thrive I wanted something to combine the interests and skills.
