What do you do?
I do things that have never been done before.
But what about having prior experience?When hired by ASD in 1981, I had no experience in laserdisk-based automatic teller machines (none existed), but I created and installed ATMs in three Chemical Bank branches and provided field service support.
When hired by TCI in 1985, I had no experience as a teacher, but I was so popular the students asked me to become IEEE Student Branch Counselor.
When hired by Dentsply in 1989, I had no experience in intra-oral dental cameras, but the Perspective Dental Imaging System I created was the most successful product launch in their history.
When hired by Cox in 1995, I had no experience in MIL-SPEC or FAA regulations, but I created an innovative low-power de-icing system for the Raytheon Beechcraft that passed extreme environmental testing.
When hired by TBTA in 1998, I had no experience in Intelligent Transportation Systems, but one month later I created their $65M 2000-2004 ITS Capital Program, and managed $25M of the projects with no in-house support.
When hired by SUPERSTRUCTURES in 2007, I had no experience in non-destructive testing, but in a year I won multi-year term contracts from NYSCA and DASNY and regularly present continuing education seminars on NDT&E for AIA HSW credit to architects and engineers
In every job I've ever been hired for, I have had no prior experience.
Similarly, I had no experience in Flow Cytometers, Flight Simulators, Ultrasonic Scalers, Hospital Imaging Systems, or AWACS Shock Absorption Systems, but since graduating from The Cooper Union in 1983 I have created new versions of these products, and more.
So you DO have experience?supervising consultants, suppliers, multiple contractors, and direct reports
meeting deadlines, managing budgets, and running productive meetings
writing specifications, negotiating contracts, and building consensus
writing technical papers, giving technical presentations, granting technical interviews
ensuring quality, fostering innovation and invention, and meeting user needs
I have experience:
We need someone with experience.
Do you understand what an engineer of my caliber can do?
