Nice to see you here at Financial Jesus!
My name is Roman German and I am 26 years old.
Although my name might seem very funny I can assure you that it is actually a true name – it doesn’t mean anything in my native language – Estonian. My name gives me tons of laughs every time I visit USA or some other English speaking country.
Currently I have just finished studying computer science at Tallinn University in Estonia – it took me over 8 years!
The reason it has taken me so long to finish school is that I have been doing a number of other things during my life that have been very important to me.
I consider practical hands on experience a lot more valuable than theoretical school training – if I would have to choose between hiring someone who finished university with honors but didn’t have any job experience and hiring someone who doesn’t have a degree but has a ton of experience I would choose the guy with experience!
During my short life I have been a door-to-door salesman in USA, a project manager in a mobile services company and at one of Estonia’s largest newspapers. Currently I am working for a local telecommunications company in Estonia.
