My name is Valentina Costa, I am 27 and I have just landed in The Netherlands looking for new work challenges and growth.

I have a bachelor degree in Social Sciences for Globalization - Cooperation and Development - at University of Milan, Italy. Althought my main interest lies in marketing-communication, events management and PR.

All started in 2015 when I was in Spain attending the Erasmus+ program for one year. It was asked me to take part of a conference at the campus university, as interpreter and welcomer of an Italian journalist (link below this page).
Afterwards, back to Milan, since 2016 I have started to follow the organization of fundraising events, high fashion events/in-store cocktails presentations and sports events. Managing booking activities, the production process involving events recap, rendering creation, presentations, samples, contacts with suppliers and potential new partneships. Furthermore, I have gained some experience in the commercial side of sales, as retail and store manager assistant.

On May 2018, after nine months I quit my internship-job and I have decided to dedicate myself to the world of F&B, since cooking has always been one of my numerous passions. So, I have joined the luxury restaurants working environment. Increasing the attention to the clients treatment throught my language skills, relational and hospitality attitudes. It has been a new lesson, which enriched my awareness with fresh consciousness and knowledge. Towards a more detailed attention on customer care and the settling - management of a luxury restaurant too.

Here I am nowadays, seeking new chances and ready to pursuit my career path in a new Country.

    The degree program aims to provide a wealth of knowledge (sociological, political, anthropological, legal, historical and linguistic) and statistical-methodological tools aimed at the acquisition of adequate capacity for analysis of the phenomena of global interdependence and design / implementation of social development policies, both internationally and locally (national and sub-national). The planned training, while maintaining a multidisciplinary character, places particular emphasis on the social and political aspects of the processes of globalization and their consequences, aspects that are sometimes improperly placed in the background compared to a perspective mainly focused on economic-financial phenomena.
