High school

Hjalmar Ludbohmsskolan

In High School I studied at the "tourismprogram". That´s a vocational program which gives you skills to work in tourism. Me and my class have arranged various kinds of events. For exemple we arranged a stay, with all activities, for 40 exchange students, a big fashion show on snow and ice, a course for 200 studens in mountain safety and much more.The program also includes a course, "Young Entrepreneurship", when you are going to start,operate and settle a real company. My friend and I wrote a guide book, "Kirunas Gömda Pärlor" (Kirunas hidden sights), that we have sold around 1000 copies of.

Objective

I´m searching job in London since I want to improve my english.

Interest

  • Figure skating
  • Hiking
  • Cross Country- and downhill skiing
  • Running
  • Exercising at the gym
  • Family and friends
  • Service and hospitality

Summary

I´m searching job in London since I want to improve my english. I love challenges and trying new things, because I think you grow as a person then. In spring 2010 I graduated from High School, focusing Tourism. I think host and service is very interesting bacause you meet so many different people, wich is very exiting and educational.  I have worked at the touris office in Kiruna, as a tourist guide and as a receptionist at the mountainresort in Riksgränsen. The product we sell here in the area is the snow, the beautyful nature, the northernlight and the midnightsun. It would be very fun to work and experience something different than Kiruna has to offer. I´m interested in services in reception, waitress, retail, tourism and other exciting jobs where you have customer contact. I look forward to any challenge!
