    Computer Engineer/Transcriber

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

    As a Project manager, I have a broad base of technical experience in hardware and software systems development, wired and wireless systems deployment, engineering, vendor relations, sales support and project management. I designed tools, reports, charts and graphs for senior management to provide ongoing, at-a-glance summaries of project status and application prototype performance. I use exceptional verbal and written communications skills in fast-paced, highly visible environments to achieve success. I maintain strict attention to detail, while understanding and responding to the big picture. As a leader, I quickly see what will work and form an optimal strategy and execution plan. My strong technical knowledge has always been a tremendous asset as it increases my communication and organizational skills. I have used these skills to foster strong relationships with my customers allowing them to feel confident in my recommendations of new products and services driving additional revenue to my organization. Those who have supported my projects know that I work tirelessly to resolve hurdles and ensure success. Need help with important recorded information? I will transcribe anything you can throw my way as long as the audio is of good quality. Usually 1 hour of recording could take 2-4 hours for transcription. If you set a deadline I will meet it with time to spare. Job Experience: College Lectures Medical Sessions Group Meetings Interviews

    Liz Chiodo

    Transcriptionist, Editor/Proofreader and CS Rep

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 4

    I am a transcriber with a recent passion for the work. I pride myself on professionalism, accuracy, and my ability to meet or exceed deadlines. I have worked on a number of transcription projects with a variety of topics, accents, and final editing (with and without background noise, completely professional instructional videos and off-the-cuff recordings). I am flexible with my work time and willing to negotiate rate and deadlines to meet your needs. In general, I work on transcripts with intelligent verbatim and a standard format outlining speakers by name (if supplied) unless custom formatting and word-for-word transcription is requested. You won't see samples of my work in my portfolio because my clients trust me with their projects and their confidentiality. However, I am able to supply a few samples upon request and those which I do have are from clients who have given me permission to share. Since UpWork does not offer transcription tests, I am also happy to transcribe a short file (up to five minutes long) of your choosing to display my work. My excellent feedback and my experience on UpWork should provide you with some level of confidence that I am a professional freelancer and communication is the absolute key for me. Working online means communication is the most important thing because we can't sit down and catch up at the end of the week or walk by each others' office and check in here and there, so I value a great, open line of dialogue between myself and my client. My primary focus on UpWork has been transcription, but I am also available for editing and proofreading, general online customer service and voice over projects. I have educational and professional experience in all three of these fields. PLEASE NOTE: My profile lists me as living in the US. This is because my mailing address is a US Army Post Office box (just like any other PO box), but I am currently living in Germany with my husband who is in the Army. We are in the Berlin time zone. I am typically available for work Monday through Friday from 7:30 am through 6:00 pm Berlin time and most often I'm available later and on weekends.
