I am a young, empathic and positive person who likes to share ideas and collaborate with others. I tend to be very pro-active and determined in my actions with a logical approach to quickly perform tasks. Moreover, I am ambitious and I always try to carry a professional behavior in every work situation.

    F&B service
    August 2013 - November 2015

    Worked 4 months in the B&F department mainly as a waiter, banqueting, assistent of barmen and room service. As a waiter, I mainly had the job of taking orders of food and drinks to customers at breakfast, lunch and dinner time. Professionaly I gained certain skills such as having the ability to deal with the hustle and bustle with a positive attitude to deliver good customer service. Moreover I become a more people oriented by presenting a friendly and upbeat attitude by giving recommendations and listen to customer needs. Dealing with customers complaints was also an important challenge for me. The job helped as well to become a more quick thinker in order to adapt to any problem or unexpected situation that might happen and do it quickly. For example, if a food order is delayed, I needed to figure out a solution to appease the customer, or for instance if there is something that run out of stock I would have to give recommendation to something similar asked in order to give an appropriate alternative.

  • Basketball Coach

    Futebol Clube Barreirense - Barreiro, Portugal

    September 2007 - June 2010

    After an invitation by the president of the club as a recognition for the time spent as a player (since 8 years old) I decided to join the coaching field. Since 2007 until 2011, I teached basketball fundaments to kids from 7 to 14 years old in four different stages. This experience gave me an enourmous self-esteem as well as leadership skills as a part of the coaching process. Helped by other coaches in the club, I gained various coaching skills and my knowledge for basketball increased much more in terms of being in the other side of the game. Being a coach englobes much more than only teaching and having good knowledge for the specific sport, it also includes a whole conection between members of the club and outside public.
