I have got nearly 5 years of working experience in various types of jobs. As I had different jobs in different industries, I improved my own skills in many ways. I gained strong communication skills by my jobs in a coffee house and a supermarket and became self-motivated by working as a domestic cleaner last months. In every job I did so far my work was appreciated.I am always: accepting new challenges, willing to learn new things, and working hard but precise. Altogether, I try to be as valuable as possible.
