Int. Business Specialist (MBA) /Skilled Spanish/Portuguese Translator
Last active: 05/12/2014
I am a Global MBA graduate with strong intercultural communication experience, looking for job opportunities in a marketing area of international business. I recently graduated with two degrees: Master of Business Administration and Master of Intercultural Communication and International Management. During this program I lived in four countries, learned how to adapt to different cultures, and worked on many group project with 26 students from 8 countries. This experience helped me to develop strong interpersonal skills in the international setting and to gain deep, academic knowledge in business.
Prior to my Master studies, I studied for 3 years in Cologne, Germany, where I graduated from a half-english, half-German Bachelor studies in International Business. During this time I went on an exchange to my hometown - Santa Cruz, Bolivia for one semester, which was an important experience for gaining
knowledge on local business. Previous to my Bachelor studies, I obtained a Technical degree in Wholesale and Export Trade. As a part of these studies I worked as an intern in Nestlé Bolivia. This was a 2-year program, during which I rotated among several departments within the company, such as Supply Chain, Human Resources and Marketing. I believe that this gave me a valuable insight on wide spectrum of business operations.
Further, my professional career continued in the photo-service company in Cologne - Pixum, where I worked in the Customer Service department for more than three years. Additionally, for half a year I worked in the Marketing department, where I managed all social media tools for the Spanish market.
Ever since leaving Germany for Global MBA program, I have continued working home office for the Customer Service department.
I am confident that during past 6 years I have learned a lot, while studying at different universities, obtained comprehensive business training, while working for over 5 years in 2 companies, and developed strong intercultural communication skills in practice. With my academic experience, language skills (Fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, German and English) and work experience as a translator I believe I can help on a diverse type of project through Odesk.
