I am also looking for job opportunities in the industry. Strangely enough for somebody who stays in Greece at the moment, my motive is not the double digit early twenties greek unemployment rate but rather the motive to work for something more creative and in an area that is actually my interest as an individual.
I have a masters degree in Engineering, business studies and for a few years now I have been running process improvement projects for the largest European company. Aim of these projects is to understand the consumer and transfer this into product characteristics while reducing the variability of the manufacturing process. We use high statistical tools for this. I know this sounds a little bit like a geek but really i am not , I do actually also kitesurf on a 10m^2 and a surfboard most of my weekends
I think that the kite industry could really benefit from establishing some of the manufacturing and product design practices of other industry sectors who have been here for a while and I am willing to prove it
Subsequently, the companies who would faster adopt such practices will get huge advantages in consumer preference.
Anyways, too much said for a first post. I would really welcome any contact from those of you in the industry
