I see myself as a leader, so since I was just a kid I started working in the Red Cross involved in creating and implementing low budget projects or as I prefer to call them "no budget at all" projects. The tasks involved organizing the agenda for oral presentations in front of new activists, managing educational lectures for students, managing the agenda for inviting new members. That resulted in being the youngest president of the LC Youth Red Cross.
Studied English for 10 years, certified with First Certificate, so I find my English as quite perfect.
Studied Italian for 2 years and then went in Bologna, Italy for 6 months as an intern in AITR (Agency for Responsible Italian Tourism) where I was involved in developing new web site for the Agency, organizing, doing research, implementing tasks, maintaining the current, working version of the site using WordPress platform.
Also wrote blog posts for the festival they were organizing.
My stay there was made possible by AIESEC student organization.
So all in all, I find my Italian as quite good.
As I started my university studies I realized my vocation is mainly in the field of solving problem as I loved math and all the logical challenges so I started an internship in Semos in Skopje, Macedonia - a leading computer software company in the region, and was involved in implementing tasks in .NET platform in C#, mainly web forms and MVC, combined with MSSQL.
As I saw the process of making a product and all the complexity of it and the afterwards selling process that was not in my domain but truly amazed me, so I started working in MKhost, Skopje, Macedonia - a cutting-edge company that provides shared, reseller, VPS and dedicated web hosting, as a Social Media and Marketing Manager. I was involved in managing social media profiles (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn), doing research, implementing daily tasks involving all kinds of media marketing, posting tweets on a daily base with social agenda for increasing the number of followers and increasing the interaction with potential customers. That was my task as well for the profiles of MKhost on Facebook and LinkedIn. I made a significant contribute in the process of making the social media marketing plan for the next year.
Also did research and wrote blog posts for the official site of the company in the field of choosing the right domain name when creating new web site for a new or existing business.
As I am finishing my studies, I participated in an extensive 18 weeks hardcore developer and tester training in Seavus, Skopje, Macedonia - international multi-purpose software company, one of the most acknowledged and respected companies in Europe; that consisted of interactive lectures and practical exercises, held by seasoned experts working on variety of projects for pan-European Telecom companies. At the end of the training, I gained technical knowledge for usage, configuration, development of new functionalities and testing the Billing system and learned the concept of Convergent Billing, Rating and Customer Management, installation of the SingleView platform, working environment and tools used, platform configuration, usage of EPM (Expression parser) and Oracle PLSQL (and a little bit of Perl) as languages used for development of new functionalities in the platform and I also gained knowledge of the general procedures of testing, development and code versioning.
