    thanks for help

    Curriculum Vitae

    After passed primary and secondary school I did a specialised secondary school for graphic/design. Schooldays end in 1981 with my matriculation standard at graphic/design.

    1982 until 1983 I was trainee for laboratory assistant for a photographer. I finished with a certificate of apprenticeship. Between 1984 and 1987 I worked in my profession as well as a shop assistant selling vine, at my parents shop.

    1987 until 1989 I did an occupational retraining as wholesale dealer. I passed with a certificate of wholesale dealer (specialized in vine). After my occupational retraining I moved to Munich. Within the next 12 years I worked in several companies with different job specifications. I started in my profession as a wholesale dealer. 1990 I changed from the office job into a grocery to be shop manager. 4 years later I changed the branch and got be manager at an organic farming shop. This last only 6 month. 1995 I had been unemployed till I started at a timesharing company. My jobs for the timesharing company had been in the office at Siemens, Amersham medicine (in former times Nycomed).

    At my last station at Siemens (1996 this unit changed into Infineon) I became the personal assistant for 5 directors with all together 34 employees. In 2001 they started a redundancy programme. From April on I was unemployed and went back to Bremen in October, because of family affairs.

    2002 in March I started a job as personal assistant for an architect creating wellness hotels. Unfortunately the company got bankrupt and I lost my job within the first 5 month. Until 2003 I had been without work again, but then the job centre sends me for one year as ward secretary into a psychiatric clinic. 2004 I found my own company because the job centre had no jobs prospective. After 6 month I closed my company and got a new office job. Since August 2004 I work at a company producing juice, the first 2 years I had been responsible for 2 Key Account Manager. From October 2006 on I am now responsible for 5 representatives and if my colleague is on holiday I am substitute for Key Account Management.

    I have good telephone manners and several computer skills as you can see in my European Curriculum Vitae attached. I am able to work under pressure and meet deadlines.
