MSc in Marketing Graduate

                                  Summary

An enthusiastic and self-motivated Master's in Marketing graduate with more than 3 years diverse work experience; most recently working for an Anglo-Russian oil company, heavily involved with sales operations, procurement and marketing. Due to the international scale of the company and its complex organisational structure, I am well practiced in dealing with multi-stage business processes thus possess excellent communication skills on different levels, both in English and Russian. I seek work within the marketing industry and being particularly fascinated by Marcoms, hope to join the OMD International team in order to apply my academic knowledge, key skills and my can-do spirit
