Career Networking in Helsinki
Hello from across the Gulf!! :)
I am winding up 3-years of work in Estonia and am now considering future career options, either as a direct employee or a consultant.
Helsinki seems like an excellent place to consider, so I wanted to see if you might be able to recommend any headhunters or personnel search firms that specialize in the areas of interest listed below. Or perhaps you may know of some networking events or organizations where individuals assist each other in finding opportunities and business contacts.
In any case, if you know anyone who might have an interest in my skills, or have some relevant contacts, then please feel free to forward this letter.
My primary interests include:
- Business Development
(Acquisition Negotiations, Sales, Trade Show Representation)
- Strategic Planning
- Management Consulting / Small Business Consulting
- Brand Management
- Teaching & Training
- Cross-cultural issues
(Cross-cultural Negotiations, Cross-cultural Communications, Cross-cultural Relations, etc.).
Note: I also have a background in Aviation and Aerospace Engineering (primarily developmental flight-testing of aircraft and missiles). While I have not been active lately, there seems to be a shortage of talent in the industry, so any related opportunities in Aviation or Engineering Management might also be appropriate.
My background is available at Protected content . I have also outlined a brief summary below. I will gladly forward detailed resumes to anyone who expresses an interest. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you for your consideration.
