Send Answer Interview Answer 1 Answer ▲ 1 ▼ After a long tenure with my prior company of 10 years, the sudden downsizing put me on the job market at the peak of the recession in 2008. The job market was tougher than I ever imagined, not having been unemployed my entire career. I took temporary consulting roles in order to maintain continuity along with an income stream while I continued to look for more long term, permanent positions. I believe this gave me valuable insights as to how other companies run their departments, what tools and process they use to be more productive, along what did not work well for them (culture, technology, tools). I can bring this valuable perspective to my current role where process improvements and/or productivity improvements are needed. Interview Candidate on Jan 27, 2014 Flag as Inappropriate Thank you!
