For illustration, I'd like to use the deck I prepared at work that I use to introduce myself. Please click on the images to enlarge. I think this one below summarizes my job pretty well. :)
And now for my resumé... I started working way back in 1995 and that means I have been in the work force for 20 years. I started as a clerk and strategized my way to where I am today. I have written more about succeeding without a university degree in this post.
"Success takes 10 years." —Richard St. John, author of Spike's Guide to Success: Stupid, Ugly, Unlucky and Rich
When I re-read the quote by Richard St. John above (a book I had in my personal library since 2008), I took another look at my brief bio below. I can see that it rings true. I've toiled a long time and worked really hard to establish myself within the first 10 years. By then I stopped looking for the best job because jobs started looking for me (I was being headhunted). I've been invited to speak in conferences. Despite not possessing a degree, I have proven myself worthy of a position in which I have now been serving in for the last five years. Also, once again today, 28 June 2015, is my fifth anniversary of working with the firm!
On a lighter note, here's more about me personally about what I've done, my fur-kid Trio, my insatiable desire for learning, my madness for books, and my involvement in social media. I'm by no means a heavyweight in the world of Twitter or Facebook (here and here), but everything I do there I do it with love.
I hope this will give you a glimpse of me and what I stand for. In the spirit of "success takes 10 years," I suspect I would be incredible in my Italian language by the time I'm 45 (10 years from 2012)!
