Good day, I am former corporate training and development graduate from Ohio State. I found my niche in training and loved process analysis, training delivery and instructional design. I currently work in the financial sector but would really like to return to training as I thoroughly enjoyed it and know that it is the career path I would like to pursue. I currently am in operations but do not have the opportunity to reach my goal of training in my current position. I am looking for opportunities in any industry to return to teaching and training. Please feel free to contact me if happen to run across any open opportunities that you wouldn’t mind passing along. Thank you for taking the time to read my message and I wish you the best in the beautiful Ohio spring time.
