What fun activity to you have in mind for the group?

Explore Manhattan's outdoors and discover a rhythm different than that of the bustling NYC.

What job did you work before you became Gainfully Unemployed?

I worked eleven years for one of the largest and most renowned construction companies in Costa Rica. I developed as an Architect in a multi tasking environment supporting a team of professionals. I started as a Bilingual Secretary and searched to help other departments; I then learned more about the different stages of a project by collaborating as a Resident Architect, Quality Assurance Auditor and member of the Marketing Committee. I was also appointed the Customer Service Department Manager three years after being hired. I would love to work at a Construction/Architectural Firm in NYC, initially as an Executive Assistant (Bilingual). Once I've experienced working in NYC and understand the trade; I would love to create the possibility of furthering my work career in Architecture, specifically being part of a Sustainable Project.

What is your favorite thing to do in the City?

Explore the city and find indoor or outdoor cozy, human scale nooks to relax, read and hear my ideas and thoughts. I also love to connect with creative individuals who are open minded and welcoming.

What are your hobbies?

As a small collector of hand crafted pieces, my eye focuses on the detail and I marvel at the crafty wit of academic or vernacular artists. I really enjoy creating and hand making jewelry. I receive my inspiration from them and from other sources: my architectural background, my attraction to geometric shapes, patterns, clean lines, color composition, and the natural and peaceful setting I grew up in, Costa Rica

What is the best borough and why?

Definitely Manhattan because of the richness in its infrastructure, architecture, landscaping and cultural activities that anyone can be part of all year round.

Introduction

I am a dedicated and multitasking worker. I believe my main strengths are being organized, detail oriented, committed, reliable, with strong human relations and the ability of resolving creatively.

What Victoria is saying about this Meetup Group

I like that they are really on top of events that might help those that are searching for ways to engage in job related topics. There was not enough space at the room for all the people that attended but my guess is that it was an open talk with no real RSVP necessary.
