My name is Jana Josifovska. I am a graduate at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in Maribor at the Media communication university program. I wrote my diploma for 3D Technology and I am waiting for the date of the oral exam. I would like to stress the fact that I was one of the most active, as well as one of the most successful in my class. I came to Slovenia because I got a scholarship for my third and fourth year of high school, from the Slovenian Government. I was chosen as the one of the four best students in Macedonia. I had the opportunity to be a part of the International Baccalaureate program for two years, which is world renown. The classes were in English, so that is where I learnt to speak English language fluently. Macedonian is my mother tongue; I also reached the highest degree in Slovenian with the highest grade A. Beside that I hold an International Baccalaureate diploma for English and French. Even though I am still quite young, I already have a lot of work experience, taking also into account work positions through student organizations. I have always viewed my past work opportunities as an additional contribution to my future development, never as a means of fast earning. In continuation, I am sending you a few samples of my work. I have worked for some of the most successful companies in Slovenia, among which MTV Music Adria, Telekom Slovenia, Spem Communication Group, Doba Faculty,etc. I also have considerable translating experience from Slovenian and English into Macedonian, Macedonian into English and Slovenijan knowledge on broadband technologies, telecommunications, as well as extensive PR and communication knowledge. . I am a really fast learner and I am starting to learn the German language. As for my personal traits, I can say that I have very good communication skills, iron self-discipline, persistency and I know how to be a part of the team. I have learned to accept sacrifices as an inevitable part of the leaning process and I accustomed to hard work. Because of my characteristics, I think, that I am a suitable candidate, who is going to bring more benefits to your company. I would certainly like to be a part of a successful team.
