    I’m a PMP-certified program manager with experience producing online and in-person events, leading international development and STEM programs, recruiting and writing. Skills: Event Production: I organize lively, well attended events in CX/UX, Human Resources, big data, information security and other disciplines. I recruit expert speakers, research topics, write agendas and emcee event sessions. I assemble high quality events by recruiting and supporting 10+ senior speakers every month from US businesses with greater than $100 million in annual revenue, including Aramark, Citi, Nordstrom, Opry Entertainment Group, Pearson, WebMD and many others. Program Management: I’ve led a variety of complex, multi-stakeholder projects, including the US government-funded Farmer-to-Farmer program. At ACDI/VOCA, I led a multidisciplinary and multicultural team of recruiters, administrators and technical experts. We planned, executed and monitored nearly 500 technical consulting assignments in eight countries. We identified local partners, negotiated the scope of our work together, recruited consultants and supported our partners and consultants as they carried out their work together. ACDI/VOCA’s Farmer-to-Farmer program has had a high impact in the communities it serves. From 2014-2018, ACDI/VOCA’s Farmer-to-Farmer program helped nearly four million small scale farmers and agribusinesses in West Africa, the Caucasus and Central Asia increase their sales by over $40 million. Recruiting: I am a skilled recruiter who has filled more than 245 technical consulting assignments in agriculture and financial sector regulation. Writing: I’ve written extensively for the public on a wide variety of topics, including parenting and international development. Computer Skills: I know how to use Asana, Salesforce and WordPress, as well as Microsoft Office and Google Suite.

    During the ten years of my career, I have had the privilege to work with a wide range of organizations including NGOs, Educational Institutions and International organizations, at different capacities. These experiences have developed my theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas of project management, administration, research, formulating concepts notes, organizing workshops and events and human resource management. Currently, I am working as the program assistant with Financial Institution Group. This has given me a valuable opportunity to familiarize myself to tasks, procedures, guidelines and the organizational culture. In addition, I have excellent interpersonal skills and experience in customer service, working with a diverse population including different organization members, executives, volunteers, event attendee and fellow coworkers. I have experience of using Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and Microsoft outlook. I speak fluent Amharic and English and have an intermediate level in Tigrigna. I am confident that my abilities and passion for organizing and planning events and great interest on working on developmental projects make me a successful and capable. I am accustomed to working weekends and after – hours, as it is necessary for such kind of work. I bring creative and fresh approach to my assignments as well as maintain a detail oriented and organized approach. My energetic and positive personality allows me to work well with others while still displaying a hard work ethic and professional demeanor. Thank you for taking the time to review my application. I hope to hear from you in the near future. Sincerely, Medhanit Solomon
