    transcription, customer service, writing

    Philippines - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8

    I love the English language and have always been drawn to jobs that require its usage. In college, my feature articles figured in the local paper and I even won an editorial-article-writing contest. I've also worked as a radio DJ for 4 years total. Other than my DJ job at the station, it was my duty to collect news daily and transcribe them for broadcast. I have also worked as a customer service representative at a call center for almost 4 years. Communicating well with our American clients over the phone was key. Customers called in regarding their bill,to complain,to upgrade services, and to ask for technical support. I've learned to be ready for whatever issue the customer had and resolve it within the call especially when I was promoted to the escalation desk. I am now a new mother of a beautiful son. I currently have a job as an office clerk at a local cable company. I'd really love to work from home and be with my baby as much as possible while earning significantly more than I am now. I'm very much willing to learn and to work very hard to attain my goal to provide for my son while being home with him. Thank you for reading.

    I always try to complete my job in time and I make no room for errors. My previous client's ratings & comments show that I'm always doing my job well. Experienced with the following: * Customer Service (Inbound and outbound phone support) * Audio Transcription * Data Entry / Data Mining / Data Transfer * Web Research * Google Docs * eCommerce websites * Inbound and outbound phone support * Chat support * Email support * Order Processing * Billing and Inquiries (Banking) * CRM * Dropbox I am confident that I can accomplish certain tasks effectively in a short period of time with less supervision, provided, with clear instructions given.

    Management Professional

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5

    I have over ten years of customer service experience, six years of commission based sales experience, and a grand total of five years of management experience. I love working with people, whether it be leading, coaching, and developing my team or connecting with my customers to create a great experience. Languages (and people in general) fascinate me. I plan on learning many languages. I can speak, read, and write Spanish and German. Although, I am still working on mastering both languages. My greatest strength is analyzing people, situations, or things. My greatest weakness is I'm a perfectionist. I want the best for everyone. My ultimate goal in life is to help the world. I want to help as many people as I possibly can. I want to be inspirational, a leader, and provide guidance to many.

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 21

    As a degree holder in Business Administration - major in Financial and Managerial Accounting, I have spent the first 4 years after college (actually, including the last six months before I graduated) working in a global Business Process Outsourcing company with roles ranging from level one consultant (technical support) to a variety of level two posts (escalations specialist, subject matter expert, team lead, quality assurance). Now skilled with knowledge in Office applications and rich experiences in a wide variety of tasks, backed by my innate sense of analytical thinking and a strong foundation of English comprehension, I aim to build my online career doing things I know I am good at while learning those which I have no experience with; to provide my clients with outputs that meet (if not exceed) their requirements, all the while building a reputation of integrity, professionalism, and cheery working attitude in the online freelance industry.

    Researcher | Virtual Asst | Transcriber | Indonesian Translator

    Indonesia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

    I lived in the US during high school. I studied International Relations in college, a qualified English-Indonesian translator. I typed 55 wpm in speed. I have experience of working in several multinational companies and was known to have keen eyes for details, and quick to spot grammatical errors, syntax, and sorts. I was a Customer Relations Officer at IALF (job desc included phone calls screening, email responding, prospective customer research), and then a Secretary at AusAid (assisting foreign engineers in meetings, typing official correspondences to the city mayor, translating and interpreting, preparing presentation slides, recruiting office assistants). Browsing the internet is my #1 hobby. I could compare prices of one item from tens of different online shops, or diligently changing keyword search on multiple attempts on search engines to get a certain information as accurate as possible.

    Translator English - German

    Germany - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    The past years confronted me with several interesting challenges regarding my career. On the one hand I worked as an Software Engineer, focusing on developing and planning software projects and realizing them in PHP/C#/VBS. On the other hand I've come in touch with several advertising related topics. Most of my clients have been small companies with anything from 5 to 20 employees, which required flexibility and the readiness to delve into new topics and tasks. My free time added a new layer of skills and practice due to the fact that I used it to write articles and blog entries, most notably about computer games and poetry. Nowadays I'm working as an Information Manager which leaves several of my acquired skills useless - I want to use and develop them further.
