RssEnergetic, self-motivated Business Manager with new MBA looking for opportunity to build new skills

For the past few years, I have been managing an internal control program in the financial services industry, but have been searching for an opportunity to get into the science, technology or health care arena, where I can utilize my business administration and management skills. I just graduated from Loyola College in Maryland with an MBA in Management, and am excited to put to work the education I have gained over the last few years, and get into a more dynamic, strategically-minded field. I am energetic, quick-learning, and driven, and thrive in a team-oriented organization, that I can help take to the next level. I am also looking for an opportunity to get back into the science field – where technology and innovation are the drivers of the mission. I am looking for an opportunity within a small team or business unit, that is strategically-minded, and passionate about what they do, but part of a mid- to large-size organization, or a small organization with a competitive benefits and vacation package.
