    Professional VA | Project Manager | Customer Service Manager

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

    Cum laude graduate specializing in Organizational Communications with junior-level managerial and administrative experience. I have been in customer service for 5 years and a project manager for over a year. I live to socialize (wait, that didn't sound right... I was referring to nudging people to get and keep the ball rolling if you know what I mean). *imagine smiley here* If you like what you see so far then please continue reading... I am... - an all around virtual assistant (executive, administrative and operations) - a very crafty social media manager - a "perfectionist" when it comes to project management - a well experienced customer service professional and a trainer/coach at that - an introvert yet an overachiever - left-handed but taught myself to write and use chopsticks with my right hand (it's my personal equivalent to Caesar's "I came, I saw, I conquered" which shows how persistent I am) The core of my professional experience is centered on customer service and improving customer experience. I earned my internship from two respected advertising companies and exposed myself to research, customer – client relations, media, public relations, marketing, and advertising at the time. I had my share of doing freelance projects for such agencies for almost two years before I finished my degree. After college, I worked at JPMorgan Chase Bank as a specialist. I learned fast and worked diligently to develop the different skills I needed to perform well. I was recognized several times as top analyst in our process. I was then selected to assume a post in the company’s Performance Improvement Team as a Voice and Communication’s Coach supporting the site’s different lines of businesses. My main objective was to help our specialists improve their customer conversations and be advocates of customer satisfaction. I was then selected to be a Relief Team Manager handling a team of specialists and driving their performance. This role fully developed me in managing my time, coaching people, developing reports, and coordinating with leaders and cross site functions. If not for freelancing I will never realize how many titles and roles I can immerse myself into. I have worked for various industries and became the right hand of very strong minded CEOs. Tools: Microsoft Office 2010 and 2007; Adobe Applications; Google docs; Photo editors: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Photoscape, Pixlr; Video Editor: Windows Movie Maker, Camtasia, Animoto; Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google +/pages; Blogs: Blogger, Wordpress, Squarespace, Kajabi; CRM: Bitrix24, Zendesk, Zenoffice, Zopim Chat, Uservoice; Lead/Project Management: Highrise, Timetrade, Smartsheet, Basecamp; Other applications: Clarify it, Snagit, Iubenda, Join.me, Audacity, Callfire, Mailchimp, Bitbucket Skills Summary: Strong English communication skills both oral and written (I write articles, proofread and edit other contributors/contractors' articles) Effective coaching and management skills Superb customer- relationship skills and inter-personal skills. Advanced knowledge in computer applications especially Microsoft Office, Adobe and web-based resources SEO Content and Social Media Management Great call handling skills Email response handling and management Highly creative and keen with design and layout (i.e posters, business card, powerpoint presentations) Reliable and experienced in using social networking tools and social media such as Facebook, Youtube etc. Efficient in conducting research, analysis, presentations, blogging, and technical writing Capable of making timely decisions and has initiative Fast-learner, goal driven, efficient, and resourceful (Can learn navigating new CRM easily!)

    Business services and administration - Start-up counseling

    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.
