    Freelance Writer

    Jamaica - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 3

    I am detail oriented, highly organised and focused. I am driven, so I work well without supervision and I am very attentive to deadlines and targets. Having a science background, I have an eye for detail, which I am confident will lend itself greatly to projects I acquire in the future. In previous employment I was entrusted with the responsibility of inventory management, and as a result of the calibre of work I produced, I was dubbed employee of the quarter as well as employee of the year. I hold a university degree in Biochemistry and graduated with honours, where I also used the opportunity to explore other disciplines from faculties outside of my area of study, which makes me a well-rounded individual. My organisational and multi-tasking skills have been proven, and I have excellent oral and written communication skills. These coupled with my passion for the english language, make me an excellent candidate for a host of jobs and projects to come. I look forward to being a productive oDesk contributor.
