I’m honoured that you have dedicated your time to my application.
I created this portfolio/resume just for this occasion with the goal of showing you why it just might be a good idea to hire me as your assistant producer.
Through my work I would like to share with you my strengths, my weaknesses, and especially by motivation why I would love to work with you.
I’ll start with briefly going over my education, continuing with my work experience, and concluding with my various other projects.
I received my BSc. in Demography & Social Geography and MSc. in Regional & Political Geography at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. I’m currently finishing a PhD. at the same university. It was an research-oriented and theory-driven education. You can find more details in my CV.
I am currently working as a researcher for my university where I’m part of a research team working on environmental health and sanitation change in developing countries. I analysed both interviews and large data sets, and I am obviously more than familiar with academic literature, which is the primary source for my work. You can read more about my research here.
I have also worked as a project manager and researcher for public opinion and market research company. Here I primarily conducted statistical data analysis.
Besides that I was an intern at the Czech Forum for Development Cooperation, and I used to work as a tour guide at a lovely medieval castle in Southern Bohemia.
Videography and other projects
Out of all the videos I’ve made, this might be my favourite (although the videography is far from perfect):
I also work for the Czech National Scouting organization: Junák – Czech Scouting. I am mostly involved in production of content connected to sustainability and active citizenship.
In the introduction of this portfolio I also mentioned that I would also mention my weaknesses. The most relevant to this position would be my relatively small of experience in working with archival material. I did work with some archival footage and pictures in my video about the Beating retreat ceremony, I also spent a lot of time in the archives of the Swedish railway museum for a project I’m currently working on, and lastly I worked with World War 2 archives while assisting my grandfather with his project on creating a complete list of war veterans from his home region.
So I don’t have any serious experience in this, but it wouldn’t be my first time seeing the archives either. I can also promise to educate myself ASAP according to your needs.
