Summary

I have had considerable business experience. In 2001-2002 at Conflex, printing company in St.Petersburg, because of my good command of English and some German I personally met with non-Russian-speaking engineers explaining our company's problems, interpreting their recommendations and instructions to my company's managers and their subordinates. My success in this work prompted the management of the printing company to also have me handle its procurement requirements, administering the coordination of our sales and production departments to achieve the optimum efficiency.

The good quality of my work was noted by someone who later established a new company called NedOxo and I was hired to work for them in 2002-2004, continuing my administrative and procurement duties. Practically all of NedOxo's imports were from Europe and although the company initially operated successfully, it was forced to cease operations because the rising value of the Euro made their products prohibitively expensive.

In 2005, on the basis of my high academic credentials, I was hired by the St.Petersburg State University as a lecturer of Economics. My business administration experience proved useful in organizing our University delegation's recent trip to Austria and Slovakia, arranging for visas, hotel accommodations, travel arrangements and coordinating our programs with the Slovak hosts. I was also responsible for the complicated travel arrangements for the head of our Department.

Although I enjoyed my business and academic experience in Russia, I am anxious to expand my horizon by being associated with some U.S. educational organization or established company.
