A New Résumé for My New Career Path!

new path

Over the past few months, I’ve been refining my thoughts about my new career path.  As I’ve become clearer about what I’m seeking and what I have to offer, it’s become more important to frame my résumé properly.

I find this unusually difficult.  I’d much rather tell the world about how great YOU are, and exactly what qualities, skills, and experiences make YOU the perfect candidate.  Meanwhile, I have trouble doing justice to myself.

However, I have now drafted a new résumé, with a little help from my friends!

Here it is. (Please click on this link to see it.)

I’ve had some really valuable assistance from six very kind people:

I thank them wholeheartedly, and I now invite you to critique this new version.  Please feel free to email me directly or post your critique in the comments section.


In search of my next vocation!

After five very productive years at Tech Networks of Boston (TNB), I am now looking for my next professional challenge. I’m ready for a career shift! I’ve notified the leadership at TNB, so this is not a covert search.

If you know about any job opportunities at organizations that need someone with my skill set, I’d love to hear about them. In my next job, I’d like to focus on some or all of the following:

  • Weaving networks among nonprofit organizations in order to build collaboration, peer learning, and communities of practice.
  • Building the capacity of philanthropic and nonprofit organizations to achieve and document their desired outcomes.
  • Fostering equity, inclusion, social justice, and corporate social responsibility.
  • Aiding philanthropic and nonprofit organizations in seamlessly matching resources with needs.
  • Establishing best practices in the strategic use of information and communication technologies among mission-based organizations.
  • Facilitating candid dialogue and successful collaborations between grantmakers and grantees.

I invite you to peruse my LinkedIn profile and my résumé, and to get in touch with me about any contacts or opportunities that you’d like to suggest.

Please help me find new ways to serve organizations and individuals who are working to make the world a better place!
