      Rafal,

      Please stop posting the same message everywhere on our website, this website is informational only! No employer will come looking here for new personnel. And let me add, this is not a good way to apply for a job. You might want to read this page (How to Apply to Offshore Vacancies) to learn how to apply for jobs, cuz posting applications left and right at the wrong places isn’t going to get you hired.
