I'd like to meet anyone interested in or working in human security-related initiatives, NGOs, international organizations and government agencies.
Project or Program Manager, or Field Coordinator. Worldwide. Human Security-related (human rights, anti-slavery, immigrant rights, international development, social inclusion, coalition building, educating youth, community building, etc.)
My professional goal is to find congruence between my vocation and my purpose in life, which is the basis of my interest in the Idealist.org community. I spent over 12 years growing my career and developing skills in international business development, sales management, project management and business process analysis, design and implementation. I achieved tangible results, including 400% returns on investment, 60% cost reductions and as much as 200% sales growth, on various projects in the manufacturing, oil and gas and financial services sectors. I was not fulfilling my purpose; however, as a result, I developed some key transferable skills that will provide an immediate asset to a growing NGO, international organization or government agency. Some of my strongest skills include relationship-building, cultural awareness, follow-through, foreign language aptitude, planning, coordinating, attention to details and training.
Regarding the congruence between vocation and purpose, I recently concluded a 3-week workshop, completing every exercise in the book, "What Color is Your Parachute?: A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers". This workshop was a very re-affirming experience for me. My personality profile is an "Idealist Teacher", a "Discoverer Advocate" and someone who is very "Social", "Enterprising" and "Investigative". My purpose is centered on the will, the conscience and the mind. I want there to be more morality, justice, truth and knowledge in the world, because I was here. Since my immersion in the Mexican immigrant community in 1996, I paved a path that exposed me to the social, economic and political challenges and inequities faced by individuals, in over 40 countries around the world. I carried out my purpose through my graduate studies in Human Security and my avocational activities, related to international advocacy, community development, social inclusion and overall cultural awareness throughout the world. I have no doubt that my best long-term career option is to link my purpose and passion directly to my vocation.
I am confident that if a like-minded organization grants me the opportunity to have a face-to-face discussion, they will appreciate my passion and authenticity. More so, I believe that we will find a direct link between the organization's objectives and my strong managerial skills and my innate ability to build bridges of understanding and cooperation between diverse communities.
there is more morality, justice, truth and knowledge. I want there to be better stewardship of the will and the mind, of what we possess, as individuals and communities, and a broader emphasis on the word "enough," rather than on the word "more".
