    Philippines - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 6

    I started as a Technical Support Specialist and then became a Technical Leader for America Online and Microsoft. I answered calls from the US and Canada, mostly supervisor/manager request calls particularly from Microsoft customers. I can say my forte is on e-mail handling, phone, e-mail and live chat support. I am also into forums posting, creative and article writing as well as transcribing files and have also done a few voice-over requests from friends.

I pay close attention to details and very meticulous whether there's feedback given or none. I prefer part time jobs and I'm signing up to enjoy it because I so love this and I want to explore on other things that I can do with my computer, internet connection, skills and work attitude. And the fee? I consider that a bonus!
