About candidate

Hello, my name is Yana and I’d like to present myself. I want to tell you about my work experience. In the past, when I was living in Ukraine, in Kyiv. I was working as an English teacher in two English schools. I provided individual lessons although as group lessons for children, teenagers, and adults. Moreover, I worked with corporate clients, with different companies, and with constructive companies where I had different courses at different levels. Like business English, advanced English, Different levels of Intermediate, Pre-Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate, and so on and so Then after some time, because of some circumstances like family circumstances and because of the situation with Coronavirus I had to move abroad and I’m right here in Portugal. I started working as an English tutor I provided lessons for Ukrainians. After some time, I decided to integrate into Portuguese society. And that’s why I started working as a waitress in a restaurant nearby. I’ve got lots of experience. Because I’ve got the experience in how to work with Portuguese, how to work with clients, how to serve them, and how to deal with some kinds of problems that can occur at work. And I improved my Portuguese skills, my language skills I finally started speaking Portuguese. I can say that I speak Portuguese as well as I speak English, so fluently with no difficulties. Of course, sometimes I feel that I struggle, I feel that I do not have enough vocabulary to express everything that I want to say. But I can say that I understand everything and I can conduct basic conversations about life, weather, work, and so on and so for. But I want to change my job because I feel that I can like it’s not enough for me that I cannot express everything that I have or all my potential, all my talents, all my abilities there. And I would like to work with your company, at your hotel. According to my strong points, I can say that I have good communicative skills and that I do not get panicked, or stressed when I have stressful situations or some kinds of problems that can occur at work. And according to the negative points, That’s my lack of knowledge of Portuguese, I mean like I still do not speak Portuguese as well as I want to speak, what else? And I do not experience in this sphere Because, the truth to be told, That I’ve never worked as a hostess I’ve never worked as a receptionist. But, I can say that I am a very responsible person I am always ready to develop myself, to develop my skills, to learn something new, and I am ready and I promise to put all my efforts into this sphere, into learning, into upgrading my skills to summarize. What I want to say is that I want to work with your company Because for me it’s very important the environment where I work for me it’s very important to work in comfort, with a comfortable environment with professionals, with high quality, Because it’s like a comfort for me. And I like to work with clients, I like to communicate with people Like to communicate with different people with the foreigners, with the guests, with clients. It’s not difficult for me. I feel enjoyment, I get enjoyment out of this work. And one more time, I’m ready to put all my efforts and I hope that it will be enough to become the perfect candidate No, not just a candidate. To become the perfect employee at your company, at your hotel Thank you for your attention I think that’s it.
