I have a strong work ethic and am driven by technology to communicate with a louder voice and with more influence.  My CV demonstrates my ability to thrive and succeed in many different environments and communicate effectively to a broad audience.

While I am ambitious and highly motivated, I derive most satisfaction from work done and for performing as part of a team.  Given all the options, each of these busy, focused companies chose me to work in a pressure-filled, deadline-driven environment.

I hope my CV paints a good picture of the value I could bring to the team at IMS.

I'm very much looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Steve
