About the founder

Silvia PingitoreThis website is founded, designed and run by me, Silvia, a multilingual journalist, novelist and illustrator who knows The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger by heart, and – in the insane effort to explore different career opportunities – was shortlisted by as many as 99 companies in 5 years across 4 different countries and carried out a total of 120 job interviews between 2010 and 2015 in France, Italy, Spain and the UK.

As a novelist, I got three books published nationwide in Italy, my native country.

A bit less cool, I suffer from Dyscalculia, meaning that I struggle with numbers and calculations, time zones and map navigating, and I could tell left from right only in politics – if only there was a difference.

I am not a blogger.

Here is a bit of what I’ve done in my professional life.

The Shortlisted I am not bad I am just drawn that way
