Summary

I am a Computer Science graduate (Master's Degree) from Europe, currently staying in LA, looking for a summer job. I have a J1 visa. My English is fluent, can supply certificate if needed.

I prefer a job involving any kind of interaction with customers.  I find myself quite witty and overall a fun person.

My exotic origin may be just the thing to spice up places like bars, pubs, clubs, spas and resorts.

I am reasonable and rational; very patient and have a good temper. I don't mind working hard or overtime as long as I'm doing something I can find a challenge in.

I like people and communication. I'm hardly ever in a bad mood and I like to keep people around me that way as well. I never nag. I always try to find the problem in myself first.

Objective

My objective while staying in the US is to meet and work with a lot of people. I enjoy diverse personalities and I like presenting my own personality. I find myself quite witty and overall a fun person.

Although I am a very experienced and certified software developer, my J1 visa does not allow me to get employed in this field. However, I am a hard worker and enjoy working and interacting with customers.

Interest

Traveling

Countries I've visited include Portugal, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Poland, Greece and Turkey. I have also briefly worked in the United States and Brazil. I am completely hooked on traveling and it is my priority to find a job which requires me to travel a lot.

Languages

I am bilingual - speaking Croatian and Hungarian. Thanks to Cartoon Network and my high school I've been fluent in English for 10 years now. In the 2 months I've spent in Brazil I've managed to learn Portuguese well enough to have a pleasant and fairly fluent conversation. I have been taking Portuguese classes since.
