IP Communications Companies Looking for Project Manager?

We have some very talented people in Northwest Florida, and Sarah Cook is one of them. She recently sent me this message with her resume, and hmm... yes, it is a bit un-orthodox but sometimes I am known for that... but I'm going to share her resume with you in the hopes that she will be hired! And no, I will not do this again on my blog. (It is quite common nowadays that trustworthy and smart people work remotely from their home, Panera, or other wifi spot. I think she would be perfect for some IP communications company who needs her skills.)

"As you can see, I've been in restaurant work for awhile in a management role. That was supposed to be a little sabbatical I took from a "real" job! I was just going to wait tables or tend bar and, within a couple months of doing that, I was promoted to shift lead then to management. My strengths definitely lie in personnel/project management. I have managed people in multiple industries and that is where I end up being more efficient. I always tend to be the "go to" worker for my employer. I am looking to get back into a more "professional" role like I was doing in management and project management. I am open to hearing ideas about any industry. I'm an excellent office manager as well. I also have no problems traveling as much as necessary or commuting. Also, I would be open to relocating for the right position. *I would prefer to stay in Pensacola since this is home, however I am certainly not opposed to discussing relocation for a better, challenging career. Thank you again for your help and I hope to hear from you soon! Have a great day!"
