In fact, a respectable person did not make a special career in my country at that time. So, following my studies I occupied different positions in different sectors very often just as a worker:

• saw-mill worker
• scene-shifter
• dairy industry worker
• archaeologist
• public administrator in nature protection and environment
• construction worker
• public administrator in culture heritage preservation
