    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 1 month 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!

    At the moment i am doing a career shift from the Testing and Quality Assurance to Voice Over Talent. You can find my voice on the youtube channel DIY arabie. You will find me a very fast learner and responsive. I studied in the German School of Alexandria and have the "Abitur", German high school diploma. Then I studied communication electrical engineering in Alexandria university, after that I worked as Quality Assurance engineer for 2 years in a German company, where I did manual and automated tests using RFT tool. I also translated German-English-German texts during work. I am a very highly motivated, energetic, punctual, systematic person who has engineering sense next to the translation options. I stayed at home for 3 years as I got my two kids and then I worked for the same company as software analyst and customer service next to my prior job tasks. I left my job now again and back to freelance as i moved from my city to another one, and at the moment I am seeking opportunities to use my translation and language skills, whether voice over talent, transcriptions, or normal translations. Have a good day :)

    a nerd with words and often without

    Canada - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6

    I'm what some people might call a "Scientist" and others might call an "Idiot." I spend most of my time doing what the aforementioned people might call "Experiments" or "Random Pointless Things," respectively. When you tinker around in different fields of study, you notice interesting trends. A lot of theories in Linguistics apply to Computer Science, stock trading is a lot like cooking, and the skills you learn in video games can easily be applied to working in Fast Food. You also learn to question things people tell you are fundamental. For example: "Most people that verbs the most important part of a sentence - that it really not a sentence without one. But there no verbs in this sentence, and the message still pretty clear."
