My skills to work at Google

My analytical skills
are one of the best assets I bring to the Google team. I have a rich and rigorous interdisciplinary background in academia. I was recognized as one of the top 1% of German university students by the German National Academic Foundation. I pursued a diploma in mathematics, a pre-diploma in physics, and a diploma thesis in computer science simultaneously. I have also participated in more than 10 summer schools, taught 3 classes in computer science and physics, and participated in 2 international team programming contests.
These achievements illustrate my continued commitment to hard work and passion for wrestling with intellectual challenges.
Being an Entrepreneur
I started my own business based on a passion for heavy metal and technology, building a sharp intuition for team work and strategy.
I was able to learn how to
- build a sustainable business strategy
- brand and sell a new idea to a focused target market
- develop and solidify lasting relationships with clients and business partners
- address and conquer the unpredictable challenges of getting a new business started
I learned the real meaning of great team work
Believe me! Integrating and motivating people from different branches such as musicians and graphic designers, listening carefully to everyone's ideas and turning them into a great final product might have been the hardest, yet most valuable challenge that I have successfully mastered to date!
Curiosity is my biggest stimulus in life. After sharpening my analytical skills and being an entrepreneur, I was seeking for new challenges. I found these by going to China and learning Chinese. After living in Beijing I started to work for Muyingzhijia a Shanghai based baby product Internet retailer.
My responsibility and commitment to the sharing of knowledge inspired me to teach a class consisting of 16 gifted high school students entitled: "Web2.0 & Datamining: How does Google find what I am looking for and Amazon know what I am going to buy?"
In April 2010 I developed an online marketing strategy for the Piano Metal Band In Legend. This strategy included to give away the music as a free download. It also included optimizing the website in a way that people searching for illegal downloads via rapidshare or lyrics will rather find the official band website.
