    Spreadsheet Guru and Workflow Specialist

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    When I was 11, my parents showed me how to use Excel to track my trading card collection. Today, I'm a spreadsheet ninja. I know pivot tables like the back of my hand, I can script you out a macro in a matter of hours, and I can nest functions together in ways you've never thought possible. Big words, sure, but I back it up. I have built reports, ad hoc and repetitive, that have gone as high as the board of directors of Fortune 500 corporations. My VBA-enabled smart forms are used by front-line operations personnel, and are robust enough to handle transactions from any end user. I also have many years of experience developing business procedures and workflows. I can map out a workflow and easily identify where efforts are being duplicated or wasted. My expertise in automation has helped large companies reduce their staffing costs while reducing manual error rates and increasing overall productivity. As a business person who "speaks tech", I make a fantastic liaison between end-users and developers, thereby reducing complications during the business application development process, and making sure that the product you need is what is actually delivered. I also know a thing or three about coding and web design. Self-taught mostly; I took the intro to Comp Sci courses in college, but I picked up most of my chops modding video games and automating repetitive tasks at work. I've also taken a few Codecademy courses to round out my knowledge base. I've never spent too long in any specific language, so I actually think I have a better understanding of how computer science works than a dedicated coder who stays in one language all day does. In essence, a lot more breadth than depth. Languages I know today and are comfortable taking on work for include C/C++/C#, Java, Python, HTML, CSS, and PHP.

    Kathryn4B2B Marketing

    Canada - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 19 - Portfolio: 10

    I have many years of experience as a corporate marketing manager for mid-sized companies and as a consultant. I provide a variety of marketing and management functions. This could be anything from working with senior management to develop and implement a strategic marketing plan, sourcing external service providers, project management, website development, content writing and collateral development, training of in-house marketing personnel. I understand the challenges faced by businesses with little or no dedicated internal marketing staff. Because I am fully conversant and hands-on with a variety of marketing tasks I am able to provide a broad range of services that typically are not found in a single provider. This saves my clients time and money and leads greater cohesiveness overall. Industrial distributors, manufacturers, business technology providers and others, value my depth of knowledge and my ability to establish or streamline marketing department processes for greater efficiencies. I have excellent project management skills which means that a project will meet your expectations in terms of quality of finished materials and delivery dates. I use data and analytics to balance the 'art' of marketing with science. My skills have been instrumental for improving returns on clients' investment of marketing dollars. I also have experience in the preparation of business plans for start-up, expansion, and immigrant investors.

    Senior Global HR Consultant, Recruiter, Strategic Business Partner

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 8

    Please note before reading my profile: Do not hire me to do a professional job and then start limiting my ability to do it properly. I do not do anything halfway....I do it correctly or not at all. If you have time or financial constraints, these issues need to be communicated up-front. Thank you! A consummate Senior Global Human Resources Consultant and Recruiter with a proven track record of success. I am seeking a position where I can utilize my organizational & concentrated multi-tasking skills to provide value-added HR services to a company's ROI & success. If you are a small employer, have no HR presence on site, and are looking for a strong HR professional who can manage your entire HR function remotely, look no further! With an impeccable work ethic, all tasks get 110% effort, as I assume personal ownership & responsibility for the quality of the task(s). I am also a creative, analytical thinker and possess the ability to analyze each situation and use business sound judgment. I have a strong business acumen and am a self-starter, not dependent on others to give me day-to-day supervision on a project. A client can always trust that I will do what I say I can do--accountability & responsibility, among my strongest values. While you may find an HR professional who charges less per hour, you will not find anyone who will be as committed to assisting you with your HR needs as I, and each of my clients will attest that they get far more than they ever expect from me!
