Regarding my education in marketing and communication📚

I´m an ongoing learner. I´m feeling curious to understand the current environment and I´m always willing to study and learn what is going to help me improve my performance and keep my inspiration elevated. My most recent training is a course on Influencer Marketing.

In 2016 I got graduated in Marketing by the CEU Cardenal Herrera University in Spain. That year I earned the final bachelor’s degree award as the best student of marketing in the 2016 class. Before in 2014, I graduated in Advertising and PR by the same University.

A great complement along my career has been my desire to put learnings into practice. So in 2013, I started my first internship and since then I kept working all my years as a student.

Professional Skills

How working with me will look like? Am I going to be the missing piece in your puzzle? Let´s find out below! In this section, I explain to you more about who I am and how it could be the experience of working including me in your team as a brand content specialist.

PROFESSIONAL SKILLS

1# Proactive and enthusiastic:

I always try to do my best and bring positive energy to the team, let´s say: “I didn’t learn how to give only 99%”. In my daily life, I feel comfortable taking initiative, working, and leading others. I possess the ability to work independently and collaboratively.

Always curious and creative, I’m a drive to success person who is always looking for opportunities to improve. 

2# ASAP [ Analyze, Synthesize, Assemble and Prioritize] “Able to see the overall picture but capable of driving on details”

I believe good ideas without a strong strategy and the ability to implement them are just like words in a Powerpoint presentation. I like to put my ideas in order, make them simple and effective, and turn them into reality. With the purpose of carrying out efficient planning and achieving the set goals I always follow this useful acronym. This method helps me to be more productive, for instance by setting priorities I am able to meet deadlines and work efficiently within fast-paced environments.

3# Flexible, able to multitask, able to learn.

Besides, I have a can-do mentality and no fear of challenges. I consider myself a person with a flexible attitude towards changes and an open mind to embrace new developments, cultural interaction and different-opinion environments.
