    Soy ingeniero naval de 28 años y por motivos personales me trasladaré a Barcelona en Enero de 2008.
    Estoy buscando empleo en empresas de diseño de iates. Tengo experiencia en los cálculos de hidrodinámica y aerodinámica de iates por lo que busco un puesto de trabajo que me permita desarrollar proyectos semejantes y participar de la parte creativa que eso conyeva. Les anexo mi Currículo a continuación.

    I am a 28 year old naval architect and I'll be moving to Barcelona next January. I'm looking for a job in yacht design offices. I have experience in hydro and aerodynamic calculations for yachts and I'm searching for a position in which I can work in that area, but also to be part of the whole creative process.

    My CV is shown below.

    Best Regards

    Joao Bettencourt
