About me
Hello I believe that I am a suitable candidate for Editorial roles as I hope my skills, education and experience match your expectations. I am an English graduate and work full-time as an Editorial Associate within the legal publishing sector at Thomson Reuters. As a native Polish speaker and fluent in English, I am looking for new opportunities to showcase my excellent editorial and translating skills.  I am a hard-working, reliable and resolute individual with a warm personality who thrives when faced with new tasks and opportunities. I am proud of my analytical mind, enthusiasm, dynamism, discipline and determination, and thanks to my university course I have learnt that sensibility, initiative, an eye for detail and deep focus are key in problem-solving.  I have always been fascinated by the written word and working in publishing was my dream. I am an avid reader of academic journals and I have always been at awe when it comes to a high level of well-written text and the accuracy that comes with it. I believe that knowledge is power and being able to contribute to spreading that knowledge via the written word sounds like an opportunity if a lifetime. I love working with text and given my previous experience I have a keen eye for detail - my current colleagues call me hawk-eyed, so I hope that it brings something useful to the table. In my previous role I was an office manager so I would like to think that my organisational skills are impeccable. I believe in giving it all when it comes to high attention to detail, meeting deadlines, learning fast and maintaining the best relationship with the people I work with. I find the publishing industry fascinating and would love to be part of the process of overseeing it from the beginning to the very end. Being responsible for high quality texts would be extremely rewarding and I would be able to deliver the level of responsibility and experience that you are looking for. Being in charge of the editing and publishing process sounds like the most rewarding job. Given my experience to date as an editorial assistant in legal publishing, I am ready for any challenging assignments that shall be thrown my way as it would be an utmost pleasure to work in such an brilliant and demanding environment. I am very much a people person, but also am happy to work with the text on my own while keeping everything else under control. I work well under pressure as I am a goal-achiever and my personal pride pushes me as far as I possibly can go to make sure that I deliver and do my best to make everything work as smoothly as possible. I will not only bring with me professionalism, creativity and high standards, but most importantly passion and enthusiasm as this job appears as something that would make me a very happy person. I look forward to receiving some exciting and challenging proposals. Kind regards  Anastazja Jezierska
