Hello!

My name is Jon Mills and I'd like to welcome you to my website. So that we can get to know each other better, I'd like to take a moment to tell you something about myself.

The best way to describe myself is as an outgoing, exploring, people oriented individual who likes to organize new ideas and projects, bring order and structure to assignments and manage their systematic completion. My management, motivational and organizational skills help me provide a friendly, positive, team building atmosphere that is projected to all clients and associates.

As a result of a Reduction in Force at my previous employer, I am conducting a job search. While I have worn a number of hats over the years I get the most enjoyment dealing directly with co-workers and clients. As a result I am looking for a position in Account Management, Product Development, Product Management or Project Management as these are all areas that will allow me to draw on my people skills and work experience. My goal is to add value to a company's products and services. While my career has focused in the financial service field, I am not limiting my search to that industry. I am interested in exploring all available opportunities.

Please feel free to look over my resume which follows. If you would like to talk further about my background and opportunities you might have available, just give me a call or E-Mail me and I'll get back to you. If not, thanks for stopping by and have a nice day.
