    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 7

    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all functions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers. I have transcribed videos and audio files. I enjoy writing and this passion has helped me to write many articles on a variety of topics in both English and French. I know the value of getting work done quickly and accurately. I am good at leading others to accomplish that same goal.

    Australia - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 10

    Born in a competitive environment where a pause was an error and an error was a catastrophe I quickly learned that desires had to be gained too. A programming and IT industry background gave me an analytical thinking that, coupled with a natural cool blood and patience, makes me able to solve the most complex issues and obtain the best results even complex tasks with pressing deadlines. Well before the legal age I had to take the reins of a family business, giving it a x3 income boost in less than two years, while my home country faced one of the worst crises in the recent economical and political history. That was only the sparkle that started it all; I've already two successful start-up under my belt (from initial business plan to deploying) and the chance of new challenges makes my mind rev faster. I'm an "hands on" approach lover and if I choose to undertake a project I always succeed and exceed expectations. When I wished to learn about web and social media marketing I ended up writing a book aimed at new start-up and entrepreneurs. I'm a great buyer, I love it; give me an internet connection and an Excel spreadsheet and you'll have the best buy at the lowest possible price. When I find a good offer, then I'll make it a bargain. I've experience in leading and coaching small to big sized teams (50 people) through complex tasks and tight deadlines. As an added bonus I'm passionate in everything is complex and, thanks to a continuous learning process, my knowledge cover a vast amount of different topics.

    Prior to freelancing, I worked for a multinational company for 3 years. Within that period, I was able to work myself up from an administrative support role to a supervisory analyst position. My corporate experience taught me how to work in a fast paced and demanding environment: working unsupervised, beating tight deadlines but still delivering quality output. I also possess great attention to details, excellent organization, and critical thinking, skills that have landed me the analyst role. The services that I could offer through this system are: - convert csv data into useful reports - familiarity with Cliniko - handling accounts and payroll (using Xero AU version) - data analysis and manipulation - analytical and comparative research - website maintenance (Wordpress) - graphic design (using Adobe Photoshop) - designing MailChimp campaigns Finally, to say that I am tech savvy is an understatement. My university degree is in Electronics Engineering and I have a background in programming and web development. (I know Php, MySQL, VB.net) I am highly trainable and always find pleasure in learning something new.
