RssCareer-Driven, Shared Services Professional

I was recently laid-off and am looking to continue my career in, (what was recently) a Windows Support and Implementations capacity. I'm looking for a work culture that fosters individual AND team growth. I would enjoy a position that a sense of autonomy but also provides interation and feedback from a group of professionals. It's important for me to find an organization that has a sense of direction and is stable...sometimes that can be difficult to find.

I have no awards to speak of but have been a sound contributor to every employer I've ever worked for. From 5/00-5/06, I helped to grow a proprietary database of hedge fund data (both domestic & offshore hedge fund managers). Recently, I assisted in the data transfer of Vaco, LLC's payroll/shared services records from QuickBooks over to Great Plains. This consisted of over 1,500 consultants (W4s' & 1099s').

Ideal Companies:

Any that are stable & have a sense of direction.
