I am moving on for reasons having nothing to do with this company. In fact,
the fact that I have been asked (and am willing) to post my own job to the
list is an indication of my positive feelings about the job and the
company. I have had a great experience here and I hope someone out there
will be able to pick up where I am leaving off.
If you are interested, please respond to Michael Walsh, Vice President for

Send your resume as a Microsoft Word file or a text file. A cover letter

would also be appreciated.
