Thomas Knodt

Experienced PR consultant and writer

Germany - Last active: 10/24/2014 - Tests: 3

I am an experienced PR professional with a conservative approach (in business). The main object of my work is supporting my clients' success in the market. This needs diligent work, which consists of 99% craft and just 1% art/inspiration/dazzle.
The longer I work for a client, the better the results we achieve.
 I have preserved a respectful attitude towards the press (and the public), and can safely approach any publication presenting legitimate information about and from my clients. 
Pan-European experience in developing and executing PR/press relation strategies. 

Speciality: A lot of experience explaining and presenting difficult technical topics. Was one of the first - maybe the first - PR consultants to explain and publicize digital maps in Germany in the late nineties; this at a time when very few people had ever seen a navigation system.

Writer, Editor, and Spanish Translator

United States - Last active: 09/05/2014 - Tests: 5

After completing my 5 years at University and getting my BA in English Studies, including a Literature Degree and then a Creative Writing minor degree from Oxford University, I decided that what I really liked doing was translating. I am bilingual in Spanish/English, since I have spent some years in England and nowadays I live 6 months in the States and 6 months in Spain. I have translated several books and articles, both fiction and non-fiction, so my experience in translating is wide since I started working as a translator back in 2002. To visit my portfolio, please visit http://editingisfun.jimdo.com If I have to highlight any strength, I would say that I work fast and accurately, and I am really good at applying the right tone for the context of every text I am translating. My clients are all very happy since my translations are high-quality and I am quite accommodating to the needs of my clients.

Media communication

Slovenia - Last active: 10/11/2012

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.
