    Skilled in languages and culture

    Denmark - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    Profile description: Top strengths: 1. International understanding. 2. 3 languages: English, German and Danish. 3. The ability to plan and organize. 4. Seeing simple and effective solutions. My name is Jesper Skov – a Dane with a flair for marketing, language and culture. I have a BA in English communication and marketing, and love my daily interaction with both language and culture. I have worked in different sectors trough out the years, which all had something to do with either language or communication. I have worked at firms selling everything from power tools, safety equipment to website development. Translating from English to Danish is one of my strongest assets, and I have been doing so for almost 5 years now. Most of the work has been technical translation, which gave me the tools to learn about a new product or field fairly quickly, to ensure correct translation. During the day I work at an marketing agency, helping clients increase their sales and get there message out. We create Social Media Campaigns, Webpages and write campaign texts. In addition to my marketing work, I work as a teacher for the elderly twice a week, to ensure a seamless transaction from the analogue world into the digital. When I'm not teaching I volunteer as as a computer expert at the local elderly center, helping the elderly with everything from writing an email to their loved ones, to fixing virus infected computers. I know the importance of deadlines and high-quality work, and when I say yes to help with a task I dedicate time and energy to complete it perfectly. Extracts of Social Media work: www.facebook.com/Ras2Ranten www.facebook.com/ihaderslev www.facebook.com/HaderslevButikker www.facebook.com/Vojenssundhedbalance Linkedin profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jesperbkskov Additional information: In 2013 I lived in Tokyo, Japan for half a year to study the Japanese culture, and I was amazed when I saw how things could be done completely different than the Danes would have done it. This experience thought me to see solutions and answers in almost everything. It was an amazing experience.

    Voice Acting & Virtual Assistant and More

    United States - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

    My objective here is to earn an income while working from home and continuing to care for my stroke patient father. I have been a self-employed independent contractor for the past 15 years and I love it and wish to continue having the same freedom to set my own schedule while providing excellent service. I have 30+ years experience as a support person in the education field as an executive secretary/administrative assistant as well as owning/operating my own massage therapy business. This combination of work experience and education has prepared me exceptionally well for coordinating, assisting or managing projects, events, meetings, research and organizing reference materials, minutes and agendas, scheduling, email, educating clients and all other aspects of customer service in alternative/complimentary health, wellness, fitness and nutrition education, prenatal coaching & massage, sports massage, parenting, geriatric care & massage, spirituality, weightloss and addiction issues. My oDesk tests depict my abilities/skills, including the fact that I have a bit of a struggle with math ergo my Call Center logical and analytical score is quite low as I've never liked word problems in math and it's been 30 years since I've taken any math classes. :-)
