“Hello, I am Alisa, and I am looking for a new job.
I can be your right hand, your left hand, your legs, your eyes and a few extra new brain curves.
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.
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”
