Today I am looking for the new challenge where I will be able to show my motivation and dedication to biology and mainly ethology. I am an enthusiastic person that looks for challenges and I expect this in my job. I want to get the feeling I keep om evolving and learning and that I am moving towards a new achievement. I am flexible, stubborn, curious and studious. I look for job with a lot of diversity. I enjoy working with and for people and I like the contact with customers and other parties. I am not only looking for the next step in my career, but also a personal development towards a better communicator and a better project manager. I want to explore my possibilities, my interest and capacities. I want to gain new knowledge in different fields and gain new competences and skills. My dream position would be in the field of research and development, because this provides me with the constant learning, researching and all the challenges that go with it I look for in a job. R&D will provide me with the possibility of researching to the new and better. However any position that would keep me challenged, interested and focused is in the scope of my interests. To summarize the significant characteristics of a future position are: Learning and growing possibilities, pursue new achievements, potential to relocate, exploring my capabilities and interests.
