I am most definitely in a job search, with central KY being the perfect location, with a broader range of an area roughly framed by Louisville, Lexington, Knoxville and Nashville being "very acceptable." Asheville, NC and Charleston, SC are my wild-card cities.
I spent nearly 12 years as the IT Director for a mega-church in the Atlanta area. Now I'm transitioning back to a commercial organization. My background includes hardware, programming, testing & QA, IT, and technology in general, but generally doing operations and staff development. Technology is still the center of what I do with a bent toward better using it, rather than developing or delivering it. I continue to be closely connected with Church IT through my ongoing connection with the Church IT Roundtable and with my special focus on Church Management software.
My Passion is for helping people use technology better. It pains me how much trouble and irritation so many people have with technology. I'm specifically looking for an IT Management or other technology-oriented role where I can help people have a better experience. That role may involve training, process improvement, project management, research, or even technical marketing. For those times when an organization needs a little extra assistance, but doesn't want to make a new hire, I have an ever-growing network of outsourcing partners and I'll gladly step in to connect the parties for mutual benefit
My value: I provide ROI through better use of technology: by getting back minutes, per person, per day, the total savings to a company can be significant in both time and money.
Some organization out there desperately needs me and what I can offer them. I'm just trying to find the right organization. If you know of such an organization, please introduce me. I would be very appreciative! Of course, I'd welcome any other suggestions you might have.
By the way, if we're not already connected on LinkedIn, I'd welcome an invite. You can find me here. Please mention CITRT or my blog in your invite, and you can send it to me at TonyDye and I'm on Gmail. Easy enough?
