    Very well-known for my German accuracy.

    Canada - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6

    Living in Canada and being a German native speaker, I am bilingual in English and German and I would be a valuable addition to your team. I am confident that I can deliver qualitative work and I am very well known for my German accuracy, speed and endurance. Including my training as an insurance sales clerk in Germany, I spent 8 years working for the same insurance company. My main responsibility was the data entry of new customer applications in the computer system and my motivation has been very appreciated by my previous employer. Having had to prepare statistics for my manager, I gained experience in the Microsoft Office version 2007 especially Microsoft Excel. Using the computer privately for at least 5 hours a day I am proficient in web research. From my previous jobs on oDesk I could gain experience in translation from English to German, proofreading and data-entry, and my work was highly praised by my previous clients. At the moment I am a personal assistant to a German company. As the job is still in progress since 2011, I haven't gotten any feedback yet but I know my client is very satisfied with my work. I am confident that I can perform the job effectively and I am very excited about the idea of working for your company.
