What do you want your potential employer to know about you?

Any potential employer should know that I am a savvy professional assistant who assisted Presidents, CEOs, EVP R&D, CSO and other C-level management in the large matrix and smaill pharmaceutical companies for the last five years and have been caught up in mergers and acquisitions resulting in my current unemployment. I've held several positions for ten years in a NJ hospital where I assisted a VP Clinical Director of Anesthesiology and Pain Management interacting with every department and I assisted with the launching of a new bloodless program designing the brochure and manual. In addition, I have extensive legal background assisting senior managing partners in NJ and NY law firms.
