Greetings Deena, Hope all is well at your end. I am a computer science graduate with 14 years of experience in the domain. I have 5 years of experience as a digital CRM marketing director and in business development. Is there a chance to review my resume and check if there is any vacancy that suits my profession? Stay safe and best regards; Raed Alloud
