Tutor Society's (TS) aim is to welcome you as a new student at VIA University College, Campus Horsens and get you familiar with the study environment socially and educationally. It is TS's responsibility to introduce you to the town and campus, as well as insure that you get the best start to the heightened academic level during the introduction week. Responsibilities: During the period I was a member of Tutor Society I participated actively in all the activities we organized, which gave me the opportunity to interact with students from all over the world. What's more, as an accounting representative I had to manage the financial resource provided by the university in order to organize all the planned activities. Achievements: First of all, I managed to improve my organisational skills as well as my communication abilities, considering that I was responsible with the integration both socially and educationally of a group of 10 international students.
S.C. CONPET S.A. is a Romanian company whose object of activity is crude oil transportation. Responsibilities: I carried out several assignments in two different departments: The Finance Department – Economical Analysis and budget; The IT Department; Achievements: Social awareness and interpersonal competences proved to be essential to have in an work environment where you have to collaborate with your colleagues in order to take important decisions for that concern the future of the business you are involved in. Even though I was just an intern there were times when I had to demonstrate leadership skills such as goal setting, ethical behavior or providing actionable feedback. Teamwork is of utmost importance as you have to build effective relationships with peers, be a collaborative team member as well as sometimes identify and manage team conflicts.
