Many firms find it beneficial to temporarily hire a highly-skilled manager in order to improve processes, lead new projects or lead employees towards an institutional transformation. If you have an impressive background in administrative and/or upper-management work, this could be a great fit for you. Find a way to showcase your previous management successes and your unique skill set and style in order to show what you have to offer a firm that needs a new vision and direction.
With a rapidly changing digital universe that is becoming more and more incorporated into our society, we are facing a serious shortage of IT professionals who know how all this stuff works.
