Some of you are already aware that I have been seeking new employment ...that I have decided to take a next step in my career and am going into Construction Management. I've been doing quite a bit of networking etc already.

Coincidentally, I was terminated on Monday (ouch) instead of my original plan to be the Terminator. However, as soon as Colin started to see the bounced emails yesterday he was contacting me... ah, it is nice to have friends, isn't it? Nothing like 4specs. He also suggested I should let you all know. So please update your contacts, delete the moffatt&nichol email and replace it with this one. kittiz@alumni.usc.edu (some of you should already have this as I've been using it for a few years)

I need to remain in Southern California & my focus is on GCs and E/A firms with CM divisions. Those are the most likely places I can gain the required experience for the CCM.

Perfer to be the terminator, but sometimes you need a kick in the pants. Keep in touch; update your LinkedIn profile.

That happened to me once early in my career. I was actively seeking another job (had even interviewed) when I got canned. Even though I had one foot out the door, it still ticked me off something fierce.

Update your CSI info, too. Let everyone know! (and thanks for the endorsement)

Thank you all! Yes, there is nothing like a kick in the pants;) I do need to write a Summary on LI... and now I can revise my resume summary, too. The list of things to do is exceedingly long;)

Interestingly enough, I am beginning to find that the product reps in my networks are the best source of info, as I am targeting GCs.

CSI was switched to my personal address & email a long time ago.
