    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 23 days ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!

    Back-end (ASP.NET) / front-end (HTML/CSS/jQuery)

    Croatia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 7

    I am a .NET developer with 8 years of experience in .NET programming and over 15 years of experience in HTML. HTML/CSS is modern and W3C compliant. My specialty are custom web applications (time / inventory tracking, simple CRM, e-commerce) and fully customized CMS solutions, which can fit to absolutely any design and without tons of options that you don't need and will never use. Hence the UI of the CMS is much cleaner and simpler to use, even for those aren't very literate when it comes to computers. Besides my custom CMS I prefer to use Orchard CMS (based on ASP.NET MVC) for customers that require open source CMS, or don't need too much modifications to the code.
