About Me

Shortly after I started college, I had to put my education on hold and return home to work and help my family. My first job was as an electrician’s assistant for an independent company that worked with generator motors and building implants. I assisted with soldering and assembling electrical implants.

My next job was working for a service group as a freelance waiter and bartender. It was during this time that I trained and acquired my strong social skills, while gaining valuable experience communicating in English, French, Spanish, German as well as my native language of Italian.

While working as a bartender and a waiter I was also working as a chemistry lab technician for Legambiente. Legambiente is a company that promotes and enhances a wide variety of production actions with the goal of improving the quality of the environment. My responsibilities as a chemistry lab technician were to analyze water and food to find any trace of harmful substances. All that I had learned with my Chemistry Technician Diploma was put into action during my time at Legambiente.

In 2014 I started working for M3XP, which is a hardware laboratory in Sarno, Italy. I managed to accrue three years of work experience in the IT field working for this hardware and software company. I had the privilege of working for SawSystems in their Hardware Laboratory as its chief, where I learned valuable professional skills such as soldering, installing and troubleshooting hardware and software for clients. In the meantime, I was also a freelance bilingual technician for companies and businesses and I was a private IT.

In 2017 I attended three conventions for a SawSystems’ Start-up in Bologna, Berlin, and Milan where I spoke in Italian and English with potential financial lenders for the company’s team. I also had the job of translating the app and the app’s brochure from Italian to English for the Berlin convention. Through the years I have been a translator for businesses, acquaintances, and friends translating simultaneously between spoken and written Italian and English.

Working as a bilingual IT for the past five years has developed my troubleshooting skills by working with a variety of hardware and software for my clients. I have gained experience with installation and the use of software for accountants, lawyers, and factories. I have developed my knowledge of setting up, organizing, installing, and troubleshooting servers mounting Microsoft software, Mac, and Linux Server distros operating systems. I have much experience setting up, organizing, and installing LAN connections, routers/modems as well as troubleshooting connections problems. As an IT, I have the opportunity to travel to clients’ place of business to make repairs, or assist clients remotely in addition to providing tips and helping customers when they need to buy new hardware. I have created several websites for clients using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and SASS. I also have experience with BootStrap 4, VueJS, and React frameworks.

In my professional and personal life, I have been consistently praised as being result-oriented by my clients and peers. Whether working on academic, extracurricular, or professional projects, I apply proven communication, language, and multitasking skills, which I will leverage into the role at your company.

After reviewing my resume, I hope you will agree that I am the type of competent and competitive candidate you are looking for. I look forward to elaborating on how my specific skills and abilities will benefit your organization. Please contact me via email at raimondorinaldi85@gmail.com to set up an interview.
