When I created RxTrace almost six years ago my goal was to introduce and explore new ideas and opinions I had about technology issues related to regulatory compliance within the pharmaceutical supply chain. (see my first essay that explains this purpose: “Welcome to rxTrace”). Hopefully my loyal readers will agree that I have accomplished exactly that, many times. Later, when I struck out on my own as an independent consultant, RxTrace also generated leads which led to new consulting engagements. It served to attract potential clients and introduce them to my background and thoughts.
However, recently I have concluded that working as a solo consultant is not for me and I would rather return to working as part of a team. I am now seeking employment opportunities where I would be able to contribute to a team and continue writing publicly. The ideal position would enable me to continue the same kind of writing I have done on RxTrace, though this time it would draw attention to my employer’s website, and ultimately to their products and services.
Aside from writing, I am able to fill a wide variety of other roles including pharma supply chain and regulatory compliance subject matter expert, sales and marketing support (including social media expertise), product and solution architecture, and education of salespeople, developers and customers. I am generally an effective communicator. In addition to writing RxTrace and my eBook “The Drug Supply Chain Security Act Explained”, I am frequently invited to speak at conferences and have done quite a few webinars (see the webinar series that Riya Cao of LSPediA and I completed most recently).
After corresponding and interacting with readers of RxTrace, I know there is a huge diversity of companies out there that have a stake in the same things that interest me. What I do not know is which companies are looking for—or could benefit from—someone with my skills and knowledge. I am not just a writer, but I view writing as an important way of thinking and exploring new ideas (see my essay “Writing Is Thinking. For Example, Ken Traub”). That’s why I want to continue to write.
I am also an engineer, which means I like technology and solving problems. Meeting global supply chain challenges—including meeting regulatory requirements and increasing efficiencies—through cost-effective application of technology is the core of what I want to be a part of. In particular, I am seeking to help a company with a product or service I can believe in, to better position itself in the global pharma supply chain market.
I am willing to explore any potential opportunity, including with companies that are inside or are targeting the supply chain.
If you would like to discuss a potential role with your organization, want a copy of my CV/resume, or just want to brainstorm about how I might fit into your organization, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 630-839-9177 (Central time zone). In the mean time, here is my LinkedIn profile and my Twitter feed.
Loyal readers, please be aware that I may, or may not be forced to stop writing RxTrace in the coming months as the result of my potential job change. I will keep you informed about the results of my job search. Until then, I will continue to write and post. The number of topics that need to be explored continues to increase!
Thanks for reading.
