    Career Direction

    I must say that I enjoyed my career at DuPont/Invista. However, in late Invista had to make the tough decision to reduce staff and cutback on operations. At this point in my career I wish to continue somewhere within this group of occupations; managerial, logistics, supply chain, procurements and training.
