Clothing Industry Experiences

I have worked in Finnish clothing industry before my academic career. I was hired as a trainee and after successful internship they hired me as a product assistant including design tasks. My boss wrote to my employment certificate that I have competed my tasks exemplarily and I´m perceiving wide areas of clothing procuring and production fields. She describes that you rarely see that high level of initiative as I have and I am very precise and trustworthy employee.

I am thankful that this experience introduced me wide areas of work tasks and I learned a lot! Several seasons were in the making at the same time and I wrote plenty of emails everyday to communicate with the overseas factories of the production. I also learned about cultural differences.

Here are some of my work tasks:
