What industry are you in?

I have spent most of my professional career in Pharmaceuticals. I was a District Manager with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals before leaving to help my father with a real estate endeavor. The project ended, I was proud of my actions, and the economy stopped. My hope to return to the industry I liked became a lost hope. No one wants a "I was 7 years ago the #1 DM at Pfizer". Which is the truth. But it doesn't cut it. Working for your Dad? Come one... I have a personal story like every one does. But I need someone (a company) willing to take a chance on me. On paper I left left an incredible job, and that scares companies. In reality I helped save my Mom and Dad's business, and that makes me proud. So who are you who will take a chance on me? I have not been able to find the company or the job. And I'm hurting because of it. So with optimism I come to this group for ultimately a career but also to gain a piece of self again.

Do you have a personal website to promote yourself?

Optimistic Frustration! AAAARRRRGGGG! Riches To Rags... It has been 1 year 7 months of unemployment. No more 401 (k). No more savings...and unemployment ends in a couple months. Sound like, my reality. Networking here I come!
