Work in Argentina (Buenos Aires)

Good afternoon! My name is Christy Carter and I am moving to Buenos Aires in July. I recently graduated with a Masters Degree in Public Administration. I also hold a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and I am a certified Mediator. I am looking for work in Buenos Aires and I am looking forward to a complete change of pace.

I am very good with creating processes and making the work environment more efficient. Currently, I work for a bi-partisan lobbying firm and assist five type A lobbyists with just about everything you can think of from communicating with clients to planning events, meetings and travel arrangements.

I love politics, but most importantly, I want to help people and make the world more just.

below is my resume, please share with anyone you think could use my talents. I am very versatile and willing to move in a different direction as well.

Thank you for your time and please let me know how I can help anyone on this site one day!

What a great community you have started here! Well done.

Speak to you soon!
