    Researcher | Virtual Asst | Transcriber | Indonesian Translator

    Indonesia - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

    I lived in the US during high school. I studied International Relations in college, a qualified English-Indonesian translator. I typed 55 wpm in speed. I have experience of working in several multinational companies and was known to have keen eyes for details, and quick to spot grammatical errors, syntax, and sorts. I was a Customer Relations Officer at IALF (job desc included phone calls screening, email responding, prospective customer research), and then a Secretary at AusAid (assisting foreign engineers in meetings, typing official correspondences to the city mayor, translating and interpreting, preparing presentation slides, recruiting office assistants). Browsing the internet is my #1 hobby. I could compare prices of one item from tens of different online shops, or diligently changing keyword search on multiple attempts on search engines to get a certain information as accurate as possible.
