    Proofreader/Editor/Product Description Writer

    Philippines - Last active: 26 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 1

    I have been in the call center industry since 2006 and I have worked as a customer service agent and as a collections agent as well. I had to leave my work due to some unavoidable circumstances and so I need to work from home to support me and my little boy's needs. For the past three years I have also worked as an audio transcriptionist and a proofreader/editor for a couple of employers here in oDesk, both of which require excellent English communication skills, thus providing me with additional skills and experience. I have written THOUSANDS of product descriptions for health and wellness supplements, bodybuilding products and sports formulas for a number of online stores. I had to make sure that these descriptions were 100% unique and easy to understand, compelling the consumer to purchase the product. I currently work as a product description writer for a couple of health supplement websites, and I strongly believe that this is the area where I really excel and specialize in. I hope to be of service to you and look forward to be part of your team :)
