About me

 

I am looking for a full time junior position in market research or in the editorial team of a magazine. I am a passionate individual, dedicated, curious and enthusiastic. Driven by an unending thirst for knowledge, I love to research, discover new ideas and concepts, and think about how to apply and use what I’ve learned, both in my personal and professional life. I am organised, proactive, and tend to feel comfortable in any situation, easily working both alone or with a team. Novelty is always exciting to me, and I enjoy developing projects, seeing them grow and being implemented. My previous work experiences have specifically taught me how to study a problem in depths, make sharp decisions regarding its solving, develop original and creative ideas, and I am not afraid to give my point of view when needed.
