Hello Jessica,

My name is Shawn. I am in Berlin for the summer while my partner is doing a research internship at Potsdam University. I am looking for work while here and I am most interested in opportunities that are different then what I normally experience.

I love working with any and all people. Most of my jobs have involved leading and working with many different types of people. That being said, I don't speak any German yet, but I am currently learning, so as long as that is ok then I would love this job.

I would like this opportunity as it sounds fantastic and is a great way to help people in the Berlin community.

Hello Jessica,

I'm offering my help, too. I have spent quite some time assisting my friend who is almost entirely blind, so I already have some basic sensitivities in this kind of work. My schedule is also open for those days. More information upon request.

Hallo Jessica,

I am Anna a hungarian girl living in Berlin. I am really interested in your advertisement.
At the moment I am working in a social project in an Art Café, but just as a minijob, and I was looking for something else as well for June.
I have some experiences not with visually imparied, but with mentally handicapped persons to work with.
The tasks of the seminar are also not far from me, because I worked in different places in service and also as an assistant, hostess for events.
If you are still looking for someone I would be glad to help in this seminar.
Please give me some more information about the exact time what is the plan of one day from when till when, just to be able to plan my worktime in the Café as well. ( there I am working usually just at the evenings)

I look forwrd to hearing from you!

My contact datas:
Anna Németh

Cheers, Anna

Hi Jessica,

I like the initiative of your seminar and I’d love to be a helping hand in this project. It’s not unimportant to mention that I’m still studying the German language, so even though I can speak a bit of German, I cannot express myself in a fluent manner.
I hope to hear from you.

All best wishes,
Yoke Vanneylen

Good afternoon,

I'm from Paris, and I could do this job. I studied architecture, I try to work somewhere, that would be a good start in Berlin. I know the city quite well, I learnt the german language there in 1996. My english is fluent, my german not so extrordinary...

If you accept, you can give me your phone number.

Thank you.
