You do not have to be the best at what you do.
It is better to be doing what others are not.
Thomas Jefferson, American Statesman (1743 1846)
My resumé is very diverse at least that's what I have been told.
When hiring managers look at my work history they see a mixture of product, program, project, solution, sales, service, interface design, production, business, software, and integration. They often say they are impressed with all I have done in the past, but they are not sure what it is that I can do for them.
The complexity of my history masks the underlying simplicity of my approach:
"While I have held many roles, there is a consistency in my practice ...
... I specialize in being the bridge between disciplines."
Everyone develops specialization mine is integration. The integration of ideas, people, organizations, processes. Bringing separate elements together opens up new possibilities and new challenges.
I am the person that gets the complex integration challenges because I appear to have a vision on how to solve a problem. I keep the role because I am able to make progress where others have not. I get the next challenge because I was able to successfully deal with the last one. It becomes a theme in my career and employers tend to forget that there are other things that I also do well.
