Hello!

My name is Filip, and even though I am a student, I have worked since my early teens. I believe that the variety of jobs I used to do when I was a youngster helped me to shape my personality, my humbleness and respect for work.  I believe in hard work, professionality and honest approech to every job position.
I hope You will like my CV . In that case I am looking forward to meeting You!

Filip

My Strenghts (Why You should employ Me)

Obstacle-immunity - I look for solutions, no matter the problem. I don´t believe in "impossible".
Result-driven - like to finish my work and see the results
Effectiveness - I always aim for the best ratio between the results and the time spent
Quality-over-quantity mindset
Challenger - I like challenging tasks that can test my abilities
Team player but also a lone wolf
Rather ask for work or find some instead of sitting doing nothing
Follow  - I can recognize a leader and follow him/her as long as I see that I can learn something
Lead - I can and like to lead in situations when I have the neccesary expertise
Self-Confident - I am aware of my abilities and knowledge and try to improve them
Humble - I am also aware of my weak points and I do not try to hide them, but to improve them.

Interests and Achievements

The most important change in my life was when I fully recovered ater shoulder injury and its consequences. Afterwards I started doing martial arts (after an attack) and later I became interested in fitness and weight training. Soon I changed my field of interest and started working out with my own bodyweight . At this time I train 6-8 times a week and my training consist of Muay Thai, gymnastics, parkour, street-workout/calisthenics, bicycle, mobility and stretching.
With that, of course, nutrition plays an important role in my everyday. Currently I am also exploring the topic of stress-control, calmness etc. I also like hiking and mountaineering, this year I reached the peak of Mont Blanc, in total it was my 3rd 4000+ peak. All these things taught me respect, humbleness, but also hard work and perseverance.


I also try hard to improve on mental and intelligence level. I am currently in my last year of Russian and Eastern European studies. This field offered my new insights in the mentality of Eastern European nations and thus gave me a chance to widen my horizons. Currently I am working on my Masters Thesis on the reception of Lermontov´s poems in Slovak literature and the analysis of their translation. I read on a daily basis and prefer fiction, adventures but also philiosophy, semiotics and literary science. I translated three books from English to Slovak, all of them in the field of non-mainstream fitness and exercise.
