Summary

Dear Sir or Madame,

Here you will find my CV to be used for positions that are considered applicable to my profile.

I consider myself a person eager to learn and for whom challenge has been and continues to be a strong guide.

In the last few years, I have been focusing on rendering good professionals, spread around the world, into interacting team members that work together on a profitable and winning solution. Dealing with a wide and multi culture variety of people I have learned to value and experience the importance of effective communication and have learned a lot on international approach methods. Furthermore, I was able to explore both technical/operation fields as also sales roles to discover that I have enjoyed both.

The above renders me confident about taking over a new challenge hoping that I will be able to contribute in another company's success in the future. Please consider me willing to get involved into something that I am not yet familiar with but that could enhance additional skills to my professional experience.

Clearly the best way to clarify my sayings and to have a clearer idea of what I could do for an organization would be a personal meeting. As already mentioned, I believe in personal contact and I truly hope you feel the same way.

In that case, please do not hesitate contacting me directly either on the numbers provided or on my cellular phone.

I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Yours Sincerely,

Eleni Chioutakou
