    Virtual Office Assistant

    Canada - Tests: 4

    I am very interested in working from home performing office work. I can do anything from data entry to research. I'm currently pursuing my Business Administration diploma with an emphasis in Accounting and Bookkeeping. I am very proficient in MS Office products and various web design programs. I graduated in 2006 with honours in IT Web Development and I've learn VB.net, JAVA, HTML, photoshop, dreamweaver, and flash. I can type 75 words per minute, I'm dedicated to the task at hand, pathetically organized and I can be contacted daily. I have recently learned Skype, Dropbox, LinkedIn and Google Apps. I work on a Mac (and also own a PC), but I've done tech support for Windows PCs as well. I have MS Office for Mac and it works quite the same as MS Office for Windows. I work outside the home on a seasonal rotation filing income tax returns here in Canada so I'm very good with numbers and I have a great concept of numbers and money. I live on the east coast of Canada and my native language is English - both written and spoken. I have worked for a few different employers in oDesk for over year now and I'm looking for something else long term. I am very trustworthy and was required by my previous employer to use his credit card to book flights, hotels and purchase merchandise for him online. I have worked for another contractor managing two shopify sites and one Amazon.com store - I fulfilled orders, shipped them, confirmed shipment, and processed any returns/refunds through PayPal and PayJunction. I have also worked for various employers here in oDesk doing everything from SEO and link building to retail and researching. I'm not interested in being on the phones as I worked in a call center for 8 years - I'd prefer to stick to my virtual office. I have over 1000 odesk paid hours. Thank you for reading and I can promise you, you won't be disappointed in my work ethics.
