Professional Summary
PRO FILE I´m an ambitious and creative business developer. I take great pride in being a team player and have great stamina for seeing things through to the end. I hope that my unique background can be utilized as a powerful asset, as I am convinced that information-diversity drives change and catapults innovation. JessicaSI LV EREK I am writing this letter to strongly recommend Mr. Jessica Claire. Jessica has recently been an intern here, at the British Embassy in Stockholm. We have worked in the trade department together, where the main focus is international business development between Sweden and the UK. During Jessica's time in our office, he has been involved in numerous projects, events, and business planning sessions within various sectors such as consumer goods and retail, construction, ICT, and many more. During his time here, Jessica worked at a `Menswear Heritage' event together with myself. We built this event by doing an analysis of Swedish consumer demands, and British expertise in the sector. By doing so, we were able to identify British companies that Swedish menswear buyers wanted to meet with, to do business. Working up to the event, and during the day of the event itself, I would describe Jessica's work as impeccable. Jessica was involved in high-level client management, as well as creative work such as designing the event booklet. As his line manager, I have had an opportunity to observe his participation and interaction in team assignments as well as individual work, and to evaluate his knowledge of the subject in matter. I would rate his overall performance as superior. Moreover, I would describe him as a driven and result oriented person, with strong communication skills in both Swedish and English. He has a great interest in doing business, and has strong analytical capabilities. Jessica has proven that he can handle stress very well, and takes own initiative to improve the way we work. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact me directly. Kind Regards, Negar Sabaghzadeh Negar Sabaghzadeh | Trade Adviser | British Embassy Stockholm | UK Trade & Investment | Skarpögatan 6-8 | Stockholm 11593 | Tel: I can warmly recommend Jessica Claire. I had the pleasure of getting to know Jessica Claire, as he attended the Communication & PR course at Bergh's School of Communication for which I am responsible. He distinguished himself in a very positive manner, as one of the most active and with a motivating strives throughout the course. He possesses the unique characteristics of simultaneously creating an environment with a very good atmosphere along with a clinical strive for perfection, in combination with good work ethic. During the education, consisting of work assignments, both in groups and individually, Jessica handled every situation in an excellent manner. In his individual work he presented a communication-strategy that turned out to be greatly impressive. Not simply because it contained good analysis, strategic thinking and creative solutions. But also because he had realized the specific need, in this case, to address and further develop the ideas and mindset of the two entrepreneurs at hand, in order for them to successfully achieve their desired development. In other words, he took responsibility not only for the communication-strategy, but also for the business development and business management. My opinion is that his background and previous experience enables him to be creative and quick off his feet, both in mind and in action. Combined with his social skills, I'm sure he will prove himself to be a very useful asset, and you will probably soon find him to be a sought of member of your workforce.
