I studied business administration in Cadiz (Spain).
I've always loved languages, so I decided to learn more about them.
- GERMANY: I decided to go and study in Kempten (Germany) as an exchange student. I spent 2 semesters there (so I understand and speak German - Medium level). After this lovely experience at the German Alps, I decided to go and study in Dublin (Ireland), as I wanted to improve my English.
- IRELAND: Well, I studied 1 year at the NCI (National College of Ireland), where I passed all my subjects, thank God! I wasn't that tired of Ireland, so I decided to extend my stay in the country of the Guinness.
- First I got a job in Hertz as a sales representative (renting cars all over the world and speaking in Spanish and English). I kind of got tired of my first job in Ireland, so I decided to move on and look for a better paid and more exciting job.
- Well, I did the right thing, as I got a job working for Microsoft...I guess all of you know about it! So I started as a transaction analyst...sure, you´ll be wondering: ...and what the hell is that? well it pretty much means that I was working within an international team of people from Italy, Portugal and Spain. My task was to process orders from Microsoft partners (companies that sell MBS products to other smaller companies/individuals). It was a very dinamic job in which I had to learn new things everyday and manage a huge queue of work...I was never bored, which was good...the only thing nobody liked was the month-ends...working from 8am till 4 am well it is definetely more than 12 hours on a raw.
I became the supervisor of my team after almost 2 years working for Microsoft. Couple of years later I decided that it was time to go back to lovely Spain, and enjoy the food that I had been missing for so long.
Wake up! I know, I do talk too much sometimes, but I know when to zip it, so it's time to say: ' Hasta la vista, baby!'
I wish U a lovely day wherever you might be!!
