Summary

Description of me as a person:

I am a straight forward, near to laugh, and service-minded woman, with a master's degree (60 HEC) in computational  linguistics/language technology. I am positive and open-minded, and work well independently as well as in team. I am also organized and a quick learner.     

Over the past years, due to work experiences and studies, I have learned that close contact and good communication skills with customers is a benefit for all involved.

And now, I am looking for my first job as a computational linguist.

Personal assistant/Care assistant

Särnmark Assistans AB

I have worked for customers at Särnmark Assistans AB, as their personal care assistant during the summers between semesters. The chores have been everything from everyday household and personal hygiene to taking the customer to different meeting places. But the most important chore has been to listen to them, what needs they have, like to be left alone in the room so they can have some private time and when they need help.
