Hope you are doing well. I myself couldn’t be better as I have recently secured a job that I was looking for since a long time. I am appointed as the Program Manager for a Human Services Program. My typical tasks include:

In addition to the above major job responsibilities, there are various supporting activities that I will be looking into such as maintaining liaison with public agencies, private agencies and governmental agencies.
