Marketing, research, recruiting, sales, and administrative assist

United States - Tests: 2

In the last 10 years I have been successful in various jobs and industries, many of which were of a secretarial or administrative assistant nature as well as management. I have been responsible for many offices’ overall office administration and greatly enjoyed those positions. Most recently I was employed as the office manager and operations coordinator for a construction business. My responsibilities included scheduling meetings and functions, coordinating staff meetings, answering multi-line phones and transferring clients to the proper employee, creating office documents, and communicating with public and private entities for optimum success of the company and the best representation of the company image. I coordinate all aspects of communication between the office and field staff; participate in payroll, bookkeeping, invoicing, inventory, vehicle fleet management, as well as an array of other tasks. Previously I worked as the office manager at a software company, a secretary at a law office, a personal assistant at healthcare facility, a night auditor and front desk employee at a hotel, an administrative assistant at a communications business, as well as a manager at a local airport. As a child I spent summers helping out with filing documents and various clerical duties at my grandfather’s abstract and title company and this taught me to be highly efficient, organized, detail oriented and how to best communicate well with people. I believe you will find me not only to be a “jack of many traits”, but that I strive to master each skill as well.

Hello there. I’m an experienced game designer who has worked on a number of successful AAA titles - 4 critically acclaimed games plus other un-released projects. I also have experience in proof reading, writing and text management. Photography and photo editing is another skillset I possess. In videogames, generally working with artists and programmers who realise the designs, I’ve worked in a number of genres, particularly action and driving. I have a wide skillset and I have worked on every aspect of game design. Some particular fields I have experience in are: - Concepting (high level to low level) - Documentation using a variety of programs ranging from Word, to databases to spreadsheets to Wikis - Game Testing and using bug databases - Writing and in-game text implementation - Proof-reading, writing error checking and text improvement - Game mechanic design and implementation - Game system design and implementation - Multiplayer game design and associated system design - User Interface design and iteration - Level design and layout using tools like 3D Studio max (gameplay rather than environment design) - User Testing including working with external User Testing companies - Localisation management - Research and presentation skills - Experience dealing with PR and press I’m a good team player and as a designer I work well with other team members of all disciplines. I’m adaptable and always eager to learn more. I particularly enjoy the problem-solving and feedback/iteration aspects of game design. I’m also passionate about games: I still enjoy playing a wide variety of genres and I regularly contribute to game discussion online. I also have experience working with children; after school clubs, game design workshops and physical education classes. I am currently also reaching a professional level of photography and am aiming to develop this as a side career - please ask me if you would like to see my portfolio.
