As you will see on my resume, throughout my previous career, I’ve completed diverse jobs which exposed me with different situations and challenges, thereby allowing me to gain transferable skills. During my education, I had been working on a number of academic marketing research projects, through which I developed strong analytical skills. Particularly, I got a strong knowledge of analyzing customer data to identify key market opportunities and creating business reports for various marketing activities. Through my graphic design experience working as a freelancer on multiple projects for private customers online, I’ve been created a number of comprehensive presentations as well as advertising materials such as catalogs, flyers, media proposals, and etc. Working as a mystery shopper, I’ve successfully completed a lot of reports for my retail, mall, and fast food assignments since 2009.
I’ve learned to be flexible, perfectly manage my time, and most importantly how to get things done having my little son, freelance work, and full-time study at the same time. I am pure flexible to work independently and as part of a team.

Analytical and extremely detail oriented professional with positive attitude and passionate about new brands, business development, marketing research, people, technology, and social media. Recognized for exceptional work ethic as well as outstanding ability to organize and prioritize multiple tasks and complete them one-at-a-time working well under pressure and fast-paced environment without compromising results. Bilingual skills in Russian and English.
