    Spanish/English Translator & Financial Analyst

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 3

    I am a diligent, dependable, self-starter with significant bilingual experience in the field of business! I am new to Odesk, but definitely not new to translating, business, or freelancing! I just returned from a year of living and working in the Dominican Republic as a financial analyst for a Dominican organization. The position required me to interpret and translate for coworkers, customers, and visitors. Previously, I worked full-time in the U.S. as a Spanish-English Consultant for a data entry project commissioned by the Puerto Rican Government. Before that, I worked as an assistant accountant in Panama City, Panama, and was again often asked to provide translation and interpreting help for coworkers. In addition, I have been asked to interpret and translate for events, including the Marketplace Revolution in Chicago, IL November 2012--and during a mission trip in rural Panama during July 2011.

    Writer. Recruiter. I'll make you sound great.

    United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 4

    After two years in the non-profit world, where I wore hats ranging from event planning and media relations to being my own copywriter and editor, I found my way to the tech industry where I recruited for a small software start-up. Now, I'm looking to launch a freelance career that lets me break out my many hats and use my diverse skills to move your business (or career!) from good to great. In 2013, I launched my community's first Small Business Saturday programming in conjunction with American Express' nation-wide campaign. I single-handedly recruited over 30 businesses to participate, and doubled that number the next year. Whether I'm writing a press release to promote small businesses or fine-tuning my own LinkedIn, my writing skills are waiting to be put to use for you. My background in recruiting over the last year has prepared me to help get you hired into the right job. I'll happily edit your LinkedIn to make it memorable, or craft a compelling cover letter to get your foot in the best door. I'm looking forward to working with each of you!
