About candidate

Hello! My name is Kateryna. I’m 31 years old. I’m from Ukraine. Now I am living in Slovakia. I moved here five months ago because of the difficult situation in Ukraine and let me tell you about myself a little bit. I was living in the city of Dnipro. It’s a big city. There I graduated twice from the National Metallurgical Academy of Ukraine. I had two diplomas. The first one is electrometallurgy and the second one is philology. But my whole life, I was working in hospitality in many types of restaurants. I began as a waitress. I worked as a waitress for a long time. After that, I was a barman and had an experience as a manager of a restaurant. It’s like Italian restaurants and Georgian restaurants. And I have an experience in one of the biggest cruise companies in the world. It’s an American cruise company – Royal Caribbean International. I worked there for three contracts for two years, from 2017 to 2019. I worked as an assistant waiter over there. After that, I passed the exams, and I became a waitress on my last contract. And after that, I was trying myself to work in the hotels, in the reception. I think it’s a great experience because I tried, it was something new for me, but I love it so much. So I worked for almost one year in the reception of four stars hotel. And the last job I had, was in the Jewish business center, the biggest in the world. It’s called Menorah. I was a sales manager. I sold events like conferences and weddings etcetera. So, I’m hardworking. I love work, and love to try something new. Actually, I have visited 28 countries. I was all over the world. I try every time to see something new. I would love to join some company and work with some great people in some European country. Thank you so much. Have a nice day.
