      "Available to work internationally" sounds better in English than "work foreign".
      That's the only thing I could see to improve, other than I capitalized some things and threw in a comma, nothing really big of a deal. It was well done.

      That's pretty good.
      I'm not a native speaker, but since the native speakers didn't show up I'm going to give in my input anyway:

      Maybe I'm just being too picky, but I don't really like the way you worded it...
      I'd write something like:

      - Good learner, able to quickly adapt to new software.
      - Can work well under pressure.
      - Can work well in teams.

      Of course you may be able to improve on that even further... I think that you can get my point.
