About James

I am retired from a career in science and technology. I have worked in nuclear power, energy generation and energy conversion. I have managed groups of more than 100 people in chemistry, metallurgy, and engineering. I have some expertise in writing proposals, and have written a book on how to do a job search. The title of the book is "Tired of Eating Peanut and Butter Sandwiches? Tips to Get a Job Fast". It's available on Amazon.
