After enjoying a 5-year retirement, I am excited to re-enter the workforce and contribute my skills and experience to a new role.

During my time away from the office, which began at the onset of COVID-19, I remained intellectually engaged through volunteering, continuing education, and personal projects. I feel recharged and eager to tackle new challenges with a fresh perspective.

A Team Player

I offer excellent collaboration, communication, and problem-solving abilities honed through managerial and leadership roles in prominent well established companies. I thrive in team environments and enjoy mentoring junior colleagues to achieve organizational goals.

Throughout my over 40 years of diverse experience I cultivated a versatile skillset. My greatest strengths lie in collaboration, attention to detail, and working with a sense of urgency. I have a proven track record of keeping initiatives on schedule and under budget.

Benefits of Diverse Experience

If I was a hiring manager I would consider myself qualified for many types of remote positions.

  1. Customer Service Representative: Many companies outsource their customer service operations to remote agents.
  2. Project Management: Coordinating projects, teams, and resources remotely.
  3. Online Tutoring/Education: Teaching or tutoring in various subjects or languages through online platforms.

Why Remote?

When I elected early retirement in 2020 it was due to not only COVID19 but also due to the worsoning of my inherited disability. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a common inherited neurological disorder, affecting about one in 2,500 people.[1]

I had a severe case od COVID19 in 2021 and it further worsened the side effects of the disease and I now have difficulty with mobility, fine motor skills and finger dexterity. In spite of this my mind and my attitude are still 100%!

Anti-Retirement

In the news today there was a story about the anti retirement movement. Retirement is now seen as another way to expand yourself[2]. I would welcome an opportunity to discuss further my qualifications and motivations for re-entering the workforce. I appreciate your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Douglas Bayliss

A professor from Princeton University and I collaborated on this new technology and created one of the first “what-if” spreadsheets to monitor and report on project budgets. 1981?
