HR Director

Winter Springs, FL

Hi there!  I just LOVE the synopses of your team members, and the diversity of your group.  Your enthusiasm and creativity just ooze from the screen.  I would love the opportunity to learn more about what you are looking for in the HR realm, as I believe that my experience and ability to build and scale an HR arm may be what you need to support meeting your operational needs.  I’ve attached my resume content for your consideration (I know it’s kind of “stuffy”, but don’t let that mislead you – I do have a good sense of humor and believe strongly that is a must-have in the workplace).

I didn’t find HR or any similar category in the drop-down for Resume Category, but as it is a required field, I chose IT.
