    Ann K.

    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!

    Crumpled Cellophane

    South Korea - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 1

    Brimming childhood years in Germany's Ruhr Valley as well as its industrious pendant north of the British Canal induced in an otherwise halcyon child a rare liveliness learned with further acumen in the marvels of France's bucolic South and the cordial towns of Western Latvia. Brought up in three languages (with native mastery in German and Korean), such fortunate coming of age led the ardent linguist-to-be on a much anticipated journey through Mexico, Germany, South Korea and Canada, glittering with linguistic, literary, political and cultural confetti. This journey being nothing short of a dream come true and still ongoing would lead - in my plans thus far - to the golden ends of San Francisco. When this explorer's hunger for culture and languages can only be stilled after often extensive fieldwork in German, Korean, French, Spanish, Japanese, Native American Chumash, Canadian English, Australian English, British English, and American English, no opportunity, however small, shall be missed to apply this gratefully acquired consciousness. I was fortunate to do so already on manifold occasions in Berlin, Monterrey, Seoul and Halifax. And thus here I am, happily extending my skills to a freer range of possibilities in the naming and taming business of well faring words. _____________ Master of Arts in Korean Linguistics, Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. Bachelor of Arts in Applied Linguistics, Literary and Cultural Studies, and Political Science, Technical University Dortmund, Germany. I delivered translation, editing, interpreting, wording, teaching, secretarial and/or copy writing services in English, French, German and/or Korean for Upside Shopping (Rocket Internet), Asia-Pacific Centre for International Education (UNESCO), Institute for Cultural Diplomacy, LG Electronics, eBay, Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon, Catholic University of Korea, 2nd Vidusskola Talsi, Lycee Jean Monnet, among others. My areas of interest include language and society, culture and cognition, language and identity, oral narratives, conversation analysis, corpus studies, multilingualism and migration, language change, code switching, minority communities, anthropological linguistics, and the magical realm of films and comics as never-ceasing tools of communication.
