Skills

Skills

IT Skills

 Basic understanding on computer hardware and software, word processing, email, spreadsheets, presentations and internet navigation, since i completed my Ecdl certificate back in 2011. Also, at the first year of my studies, i passed my Information Analysis and Finance for Business exams, which were based on spreadsheets (Microsoft Excel) and presentations (Microsoft Power Point) and my grades were 76/100 and 89/100 respectively. 

Communication skills

My interpersonal communication skills and my presentation skills were tested especially during those three years in university. The assignments we had to undertake as a group were coped through good communication, collaboration and focus on submiting high quality reports and assignments. My interpersonal communication skills were also enhanced especially through my job as a bartender.

Problem Solver

I learn how to identify a problem on a first stage and then solving the problem through modes i developed in university. My university experience  gave me the opportunity to develop modes like asking questions, brainstorming and searching for alternative solutions in order to tackle with issues that every person has to deal everyday in personal and professional life.

Flexibility and adaptability

Μy recent past gave me the opportunity to learn how to adapt easily and be fully effective, regardless of surroundings. During the last four years, i have lived, worked and studied in four countries (Cyprus, United Kingdom, United States, Italy) and i have completed all the goals i had set in every country. The procedure of moving in another country or even in another city is always challenging but the benefits from this experience, in both my personal and professional life are invaluable. My age allows me to exploit the business world outside my country of origin and that is what i am keen to do in the future.
