    I am a multi-talented creative thinker with an academic twist. I have always loved art and writing but I studied Psychology and Economics at University instead. I started my career tutoring young adults as well as children with special needs and only recently returned to my love of art by taking courses in Graphic Design. All of this means that I can draw from many different sources of experience to produce excellent results in a host of different fields. I look forward to working with you!

    Business Communication and Resume Writing

    United States - Last active: 25 days ago - Tests: 7

    My educational background has given me a solid understanding of organizational communication and human relations. While studying for my bachelor of arts, I developed and co-facilitated six workshops of various subjects, including intergenerational communication in the workplace and transformational learning. Studying for my master of human relations helped refine my understanding of human and organizational behavior, thus enabling me to better assess community needs and foster relationships between employee and employer. As a Job Placement Coordinator, I have become proficient at writing cover letters and resumes, as well as communicating diligently through written word with potential employers and local businesses. Most importantly, I am a life-long learner, seeking to always improve and never remain static. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to continue to develop professionally.

    Author and a native speaker of Danish

    Denmark - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4

    My name is Marco! I am a young and very straightforward employee, who is always ready to make a hundred percent out of the material I am given. Simply a young and successful man that you can count on! I hope you wonder why you should choose me instead of all the others? Well, first of all I can say that I have about 5 years of experience in translating English-Danish and Danish-English. I am a native speaker of Danish. Currently, I am studying English and have done this for several years now. Another very important thing to know about how I work is that I would rather use another 30 minutes to check for mistakes, than hand over a product that is of a lower standard than it could be. As a translator, I do not just translate. I try my best to find the perfect word to get the same message out there when the project is translated. As a translator, I aim to provide the best possible experience for those who are going to read it later. Because of my mixed family roots, I am a quick learner of new languages and I have currently been studying French for the last 26 months.
