Summary

Highly motivated public relations professional who is an accomplished public speaker with extraordinary verbal and written communication skills. I am also someone who is independent and highly motivated, who considers public speaking a piece of cake and loves and knows how to communicate with a lot of different types of people.

During the past five years at University I gained a great theoretical and practical insight into both, media functioning and public relations. During my studies I evolved a clear understanding in how far media relations can successfully be applied to support today’s business, especially if this takes place in an intern communication and corporate communication. Additionally I was able to achieve practical knowledge of corporate communication and sales department.

Undergraduate

Faculty of Economics Split

I enrolled in a The undergraduate professional study programme for accounting and finance at the University of Applied Sciences in Split in 2005, but I never completed the degree program. Over time I realized that my priorities have changed and that the economy is not an area that interests me primarily. However, I have learned many new applications and areas such as the basis of accounting and IT programs for economy. At the time I realized what my primary goal was and that the social sciences are area of my interest and love.

While I worked at the University of Zagreb, I had a pleasure to work with a number of very bright and exceptionally talented students. Ana was one of them. I was working with her during the first semester of her studies (Bachelor degree), and even at that very early stage she had a clear goal to develop a career in PR and Communication. She was an active member of the class that I was teaching, and she articulated her ideas very well. I am very pleased to see that she managed to gain experience in her chosen field, and will be looking forward to see her at a higher position in the field of PR/Communication. I will be very negatively surprised should this not happen some time soon.
