    Abdul Wahid

    Pakistan - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 7

    I'm more than a telemarketer or an appointment-setter. I'm a communicator, and the sincerity that emanates from what I say can be heard and felt. I have had extensive experience in dealing with customers and clients in various fields like retail, customer service, training, quality assurance, account management, and business development. English communication skills is my forte and I believe this is my ticket to accomplish tasks asked of me. Writing and speaking are both interests and talents. All the above, plus my good work ethic, will certainly appeal to people who would want detail and timeliness in the work they want done.

    Fiction writer with a non-fiction bent

    United States - Tests: 2

    Writing comes natural to some people. I wasn't one of them. Coming from a fiction/ poetry background, learning the brass tacks of effective, punchy prose in nonfiction and informational came with a steep learning curve. Enter some excellent online workshops and some hard work. Not to mention the assistance of my tech savvy teen and the (gentle) insistence from my wife... Now my special brand of half-baked observation is available to the public. With many thanks from my wife

    Copy Editor

    United States - Tests: 2

    I'm a full-time copy editor at a large global accounting firm. My day job allows me to interact with coworkers around the world who may need a little help improving their business reports, marketing materials, resumes, proposals, newsletters, and more. Prior to joining my current company, I worked as an editorial assistant for a medical association. I've also spent time on the advertising side of publishing, and I have an advertising degree from Michigan State University. Recently, I've started proofreading film and TV scripts, as well. The communications and branding worlds have offered me incredible opportunities to brainstorm content, write SEO-friendly copy for marketing and blog posts, create effective social media campaigns, develop art concepts, and proofread the final product. Our jobs should involve the activities we do when we're procrastinating--for me that means reading, improving, and sharing interesting content with the world. On a perfect day, that means health, interior design, film, and travel-related content. I look forward to hearing more about your project!
