My main skills and experiences relevant for start-up job can be summarized as follows:

As a colleague I will bring relevant work experience from my former job at MMR (Market and Media research). What I bring to the table are great analytical skills which I have developed through my analysis of most major markets in Iceland. I have gained number crunching skills through extensive reporting of multiple research agendas as well as being responsible for setting up research design and managing customer relations and contracts for the company. My successful delivery of appropriate researches and insightful reports for senior management of marketing managers in diverse markets, often under tight deadlines, has given me great confidence and a sense of professionalism which are traits that I hope to develop further.
