IT Project Manager Not Held Back by Traumatic Brain Injury


Big Tent Jobs announces another successfully placed deserving candidate with a top company in the financial services sector.

Southfield, MI, August 17, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Having a disability doesn't preclude a person from being a good hire and a phenomenal employee. A woman in Michigan suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can attest to that. A leading financial services company just hired her as their IT Project Manager. The company recently acquired one of its national competitors and needed a capable and hard-working IT Project Manager to effect a smooth transition. The job requires her to make sure that the business needs for the combined entity are being defined sufficiently to enable the software and hardware requirements to be scoped, developed and delivered.

TBI, a form of acquired brain injury, occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain, in this case a car accident. Recent data from the CDC shows that, on average, approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury annually. Dr. Lane Brown, program director for the brain injury and stroke programs at the Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia, PA says, "Brain injury survivors are still capable of doing many things...and often it's possible [for them] to do the work, if the environment can be supportive."

"People with disabilities are not only work ready but they can thrive in high impact positions, like this IT Project Manager," says Adam Kaplan, founder and CEO of Big Tent Jobs, the recruiting firm responsible for engineering this hire. "Companies who recruit from this hidden talent pool are setting themselves up for great success!"

Big Tent Jobs, LLC is a Michigan-based recruiting company which places skilled and college-educated professionals, including those with hidden and visible disabilities, in positions at leading companies and organizations. Big Tent Jobs matches the most talented candidates with hiring managers who are committed to meeting and exceeding their business objectives.
