Hello there!

Being a Maritime Archaeologist certainly sounds adventurous, but there isn't much space in the Danish market for an army of underwater researchers! For this reason, I am choosing to hang up my diving gear, and would like to offer your start-up the very best of my creative capabilities for working on dry land.

Me & My Work Experience:
I have worked as a freelance editor, blog manager and I've had various hospitality-related jobs, that shape me to communicate with clients with a strong sense of friendly professionalism. In addition to excellent language use, I am attentive to detail, work well within a team while still industriously independent, and my "go-get-it" attitude would make me a goal-orientated new addition to your team.

As a researcher, I am capable of collecting and analysing quantitative and qualitative data sets, conducting interviews, writing reports, corresponding by email, organising logistics, and I familiar with drawing conclusions from trends and feedback with regards to user research.

I am a native-English speaker, former language teacher, and a creative writer, which means that I am equipped to target different audiences, offer them something new or peak their curiosity, especially in the case of creating content for a website/blog.

I recognise the need to balance text and visuals, static and interactive content, and the importance of building an online presence, hence I could also benefit your communications and web design department. My university professor once described me as having a "colourful writing" style, which makes even the most scientific research paper easy and enjoyable to read!

Me & My Work Ethic:
My personal background (growing up in South East Asia as a child, and Europe as an adult) shapes me to be an open-minded people-orientated person. I am adaptive to new working environments and enjoy working with and alongside dynamic personalities. Furthermore, I am always willing to lend a helping hand and I am empathetic towards others' needs, which means that I look for sustainable solutions that help the individual without letting down the team. 

Me @ The Moment:
As a Dane, whose upbringing abroad makes me somewhat 'foreign' in Denmark, job-hunting is proving to be challenging, but I am determined, hard-working, and I am open to learning new skills, which is why I take online tutorials (digital illustration, graphic design, Photoshop, etc.), and study Danish in addition to my job search. Jeg prøver at udvikler min dansksprog evner så hurtigt som muligt! 

If its sound like my profile could match a position within your start up company, or even if it seems like I have the bubbly personality you believe you could work happily with, I am eager to hear from you!

Best of regards, 
Tasha
