Who I am...

Good morning,

my name is Mario Melillo, I have just turned 30 and I would love to work for your company. Why? Because I am a curious person, who appreciates teamwork, who sacrifices himself in order to achieve its objectives. I think this is what you are looking for one of your future collaborator in order to improve your business, and I am going to support you loyally in this design.

In my life path, despite forced to deal with some unexpected twist of fate, I have continued to engage: I worked and continued studying to the best I could in order to achieve in the best way the opportunities offered me from life.

My main professional skills concern the field of marketing and communication, whether for business as well the institutions. I was involved in the management of press offices, journalism, institutional relations and political marketing.

My second major professional passion regard the ecosystem of innovative startups and business administration overall. In this period of my life I want to build my career by strengthening my competences and skills in the field of business management, from an economic point of view instead of the corporate communication.

Moreover, as I said, for years I have been working so that my passion for technological innovation and the startup world might become part of my professional activities. I greatly appreciate the work of LVenture and Luiss Enlabs, for this reason, work for you would be for me a “daily gym of experiences”, as well as a pleasure and honor.
