OBJECTIVE: Looking to put my skills and knowledge to work so that I can be a valued asset to your team.

SUMMARY OF: In the United States Army, my initial job was an Administrative Specialist in the 82d Airborne Division Headquarters for 6 years working with Plans and operations directly for General Officers. Everything had to go perfect and if it did not, it better go unnoticed. Fortunately, everything I did went unnoticed. I think outside the box and can handle vast amounts of pressure. After those 6 years, my
Boss, a general officer asked me if I would like to continue working with him at Headquarters, XVIII Airborne Corps since he was being promoted to Major General. I said yes and from then spent another 8 years working at an even higher
Headquarters. Again, all my mistakes apparently went unnoticed. Everywhere I was assigned, I tried to do the best job I could plus anything else that made life easier for the officers over me. I pride myself in accomplishing all my missions and
think ahead of what they may need next. Since retiring from the Army, I have managed people several manufacturing plants and try to instill pride, integrity, and
always do the best job you can to continue being marketable in the future. I tell them that you are perceived as others perceive you, so make sure you are always perceived in a positive way.

As you can see from my resume, I have worked in many different situation and can adapt to many different environments.

I hope this will give you a small picture of what I am about. I can be counted on and trusted which is getting harder to find these days.

Thank you for your interest
William (Bill) Williamson
