Resume Building and Writing,
I am looking for a new job as I am unhappy at my current position and feel I don't have any upward mobility.
I have been working as a financial accountant for almost 10 years doing sales tax returns for multiple states, accruing and spreading property taxes. I improved the profit and loss (P&L) statement by using formulas to extract data from the trial balance in Excel. When the company merged I combined the P&L resulting in a file containing over 100 tabs. I took a VBA class to improve my skills (years ago).
I kept my job thru two treatments as I meet deadlines and successfully complete my responsibilities with little supervision. The first being an operation in 2011 that resulted in me being in the ICU for a couple of weeks followed by a couple weeks in rehab. The second was 6 weeks of daily radiation followed by 12 rounds (10 months) of chemo.
I have a BA in Business Administration - Finance, a minor in Economics and a certificate in International Business.
I have no ongoing health problems that affect my work. I am disabled with only the use left hand which limits my ability to function normally. I have learned to type and 10-key with only my left hand and continually improve my skills. I walk with a cane (as I look like a drunk when I don't use it); so I am very open about my condition.
My ideal job would be something like project management.
