resume 150 offers Alisa

I get along with a wide range of people. Many individuals like me – children, retirees, hipsters, creative youth, mommies on maternity leave, sharp men in suits, gay, lesbian, hetero- and bisexuals.

I am ready to do everything and even more, if I know that it will bring real benefit to the company or to a person for whom I work. And of course, I expect that my work will be valued accordingly.

I will not go with you to bury a corps, but I will quickly google 12 most effective ways of utilizing a corps in city limits, as well as five companies that will do it for you.
I learn quickly and adjust. It is easy for me to begin a new task. I have endurance.
I am good at analysing situations.

Having borrowed wisdom of Jewish women, I have filled out a notepad with beneficial contacts and advice for any life situation. I will help you with finding a vet for your tarantula Gosha, or fresh strawberries in February for the pregnant wife of the distant cousin of your important client.
My Eastern roots help me keep quiet when it’s necessary. And I will loyally say “yes, Sir” or “yes, Ma’am” when my boss is not in their best mood.
But when necessary, I turn into a cold-blooded employee. I will take only clear requests, I want my deadlines met, and I demand respect for people’s work and objectivity.

I have experience in wholesale and retail sales, in accounting, copy-writing, content management and even in baby-sitting.

I used to own an internet store. I am familiar with context advertising, algorithm of promotion in social media, and some publishing.
I am knowledgeable in
1c, Photoshop, Word, Excel, Google-documents.

I can effectively plan my day. I do not like to waste my time.

My level of English: I easily understand foreigners and they understand me.
I am fluent in Ukrainian, which is not surprising.

Some personal info:
I was born and grew up in Kyiv. I know the coziest places in the city where you can hide from the crowds. I can show the best sight-seeing to visitors, and places where you can have a great meal and a cheerful drink.
I am 25. I am young and full of stamina. I have a 6-year-old son. His age is just perfect for staying with baby-sitters and grandmas. He rarely gets sick and I do have to worry about his graduation exams and unsuccessful marriage.

Extra bonuses:
I can ride a horse
. I am gifted in choosing the best deals.
I write well. Therefore, it will be a fantastic read about my super awesome new job that I am about to get soon.
I know four words in French and two in German (besides numbers).
I can photograph a brick in such a way that people take it for a piece of meat or tiramisu.

I would appreciate your share of my resume on social media.

Look forward to meeting you. Alisa

Get Rid of Stress Once and For All

FROM STRESS TO HARMONY IN ONE STEP

                                                     Training duration – three hours

Oh stress …stress…. stress……stress…

How much has been written about it? How much have we heard about it? And how much we know about it!?! With all this knowledge, stress still remains one of the most common problems in a person’s life.

Stressful situations may occur at home, at work, out in the street, when you visit someone, etc.

If we behave inappropriately in a stressful situation, we often regret it, don’t we? Our status at work and in our family, relationships with relatives and friends, depend on how we behave at that moment (words said, actions taken), etc. Our reaction to a stressful situation effects not only our relationships with people in our lives, but our health!

Be a Key That Opens Doors to Others

Today I would like to share wisdom from another talented individual whom I have interviewed for my upcoming book “Bigger and Better: Master the Game of Career”. Please meet Mr. Milo Vassallo, a former Consul General of Malta and a Board member of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Canada (EUCCAN).  Please read Milo’s bio.

Milo Vassallo

Here is a sneak peek of our interview:

Q: As an immigrant, what is your advice to newcomers to Canada?

 A: Connect with people.  Networking is the best thing you can do for  yourself when you are new to a country.  And especially in Canada when people are coming from all walks of life and can share with you their own unique experiences.  It’s amazing how many doors will open from the most unlikely people.  And what’s so great is that over time, you can become that person who opens doors for others.   That’s where I get the most joy.

Canada is a great country with an enormous amount of opportunity for anyone who wants to work hard.  I worked hard, and people recognized that so they opened a few doors for me.  I saw every opportunity as a gift and needless to say, I took advantage of every gift that was given to me.  I found success through hard work and determination.

I will also advise to adopt the Canadian way of life and be proud of your new home.  Canada is so accepting of all cultures; it’s a wonderful place where you can hold strong to the roots of your homeland.  But being Canadian – that’s something to be incredibly proud of.  I know I am.
