Full time employment:
Worked as a thermal designer for GaV-group in Paimio, Finland for approximately two
years. At GaV-group my duties included thermal design of shell & tube heat exchangers,
sales of said equipment as well as customer service and the maintainance of customer
relations. The working relationship wit GaV-group was concluded of my own volition, in
order to finish my studies at Åbo Akademi University.
After my initial contract with GaV-group expired I resumed my work for them as a
consultant. This secondary contract lasted for 8 months on an as-needed basis, during this
time my duties were limited to thermal design only. The contract was concluded due to a
reform of GaV-groups target market areas, after which my services were no longer
