Seeking opportunitites

South Korea - Last active: 05/09/2014 - Tests: 2

Having taken a Master’s Degree in International Administration Strategy at one of the top Universities in South Korea, I am full of excitement to continue to put what I have learnt into practice in the workplace. I consider myself driven, self-motivated, goal-oriented, flexible, and I am organized and always willing to learn more. Know how to meet dead-lines, responsible. I am equally happy working autonomously as well as in team. Naturally curious, I have very strong analytical skills and have the ability to see opportunities where others see obstacles. Living in Korea for over 4 years developed my understanding of completely different culture, traditions and way of living as well as doing business, and made me more open-minded and globally aware. I strongly believe that my qualifications as well as my education along with my personal desire to succeed can be used as an effective interlink between companies and countries.
