    Julian Z.

    Translator English - German

    Germany - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    The past years confronted me with several interesting challenges regarding my career. On the one hand I worked as an Software Engineer, focusing on developing and planning software projects and realizing them in PHP/C#/VBS. On the other hand I've come in touch with several advertising related topics. Most of my clients have been small companies with anything from 5 to 20 employees, which required flexibility and the readiness to delve into new topics and tasks. My free time added a new layer of skills and practice due to the fact that I used it to write articles and blog entries, most notably about computer games and poetry. Nowadays I'm working as an Information Manager which leaves several of my acquired skills useless - I want to use and develop them further.
