Determined Fast and Reliable

United States - Tests: 7

I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in Europe. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I am also learning Italian. I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. I spent 4 years working 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 Project Manager; I was responsible for organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. 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.
