Objective

I am applying for a position as a Project Manager.  My goal is to work in information technology with an organization that is looking for a Project Manager to take charge of their projects and bring them in on time and under budget.  I have over 12 years of experience in all aspects of project management including scope statements, detailed requirements, use cases, project risk management strategies, cost control, quality control and resource management.  This experience has provided me with the creativity, intelligence, and forethought to manage multiple, ongoing project issues within a very proactive framework.  I am a leader who can quickly grasp business case and industry requirements and when needed, effectively create presentations and proposals. I communicate equally as effective with clients, project teams and stakeholders as well as the executive group.
