My dream job is to combine the development of my career in the biomedical sector within an high-technology and multidisciplinary environment. The biomedical engineering studies provided me the theoretical knowledge in mechanics, imaging and electronics to be applied in human applications. During my thesis I enjoyed the fact of working in a real-life project. I am stimulated by challenges and innovation in which I can handle with my problem solving skills.
I believe that working in the biomedical sector is the ideal engineering job for me because I can develop and apply my knowledge in different innovative fields with the aim to improve the life of the individuals. I am strongly interested in working in solutions for diagnosis therapy, surgery and rehabilitation treatments. I have a broad background mechanics, electronics, imaging and physiology and in particular the application of these in a life science environment. I am looking for a dynamic job. Also during my research Internship in Thailand I discovered my appreciation for transfer my knowledge into real life situations. I am eager to use the technical knowledge and project management skills (planning activities and FMEA) I gained at university in a concrete project.
I would like to work in an international environment. I am convinced that working in a biomedical company as a biomedical engineer is the ideal environment that inspires you every day. I am eager to learn and I am convinced that in the inspiring place I can extend my knowledge and develop my personal and working skills.
In the last three months I worked as intern in a biomedical company in Belgium as a mechanical engineer. I gained useful experience in work planning, identification of sub-system requirements from the user’s needs, research, CAD work and 3D printing. I had weekly meetings with my supervisor, monthly presentations about my progress to whole team and finally I delivered a complete report. I consider this experience applicable also in other companies in terms of working focused on details, methodology, and knowledge about CAD and 3D printing. I had to learn quickly new tools and I was successful in it.
I am strongly motivated to work in the biomedical sector. I am a flexible and an open-minded person that likes to work both independently and in a team. I have good communication skills and have a curiosity for new developments. I am sure that my talents, enthusiasm and broad interest make me a good candidate. I am passionate in what I do, I would like to work for an innovative company.
