    Skilled in languages and culture

    Denmark - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    Profile description: Top strengths: 1. International understanding. 2. 3 languages: English, German and Danish. 3. The ability to plan and organize. 4. Seeing simple and effective solutions. My name is Jesper Skov – a Dane with a flair for marketing, language and culture. I have a BA in English communication and marketing, and love my daily interaction with both language and culture. I have worked in different sectors trough out the years, which all had something to do with either language or communication. I have worked at firms selling everything from power tools, safety equipment to website development. Translating from English to Danish is one of my strongest assets, and I have been doing so for almost 5 years now. Most of the work has been technical translation, which gave me the tools to learn about a new product or field fairly quickly, to ensure correct translation. During the day I work at an marketing agency, helping clients increase their sales and get there message out. We create Social Media Campaigns, Webpages and write campaign texts. In addition to my marketing work, I work as a teacher for the elderly twice a week, to ensure a seamless transaction from the analogue world into the digital. When I'm not teaching I volunteer as as a computer expert at the local elderly center, helping the elderly with everything from writing an email to their loved ones, to fixing virus infected computers. I know the importance of deadlines and high-quality work, and when I say yes to help with a task I dedicate time and energy to complete it perfectly. Extracts of Social Media work: www.facebook.com/Ras2Ranten www.facebook.com/ihaderslev www.facebook.com/HaderslevButikker www.facebook.com/Vojenssundhedbalance Linkedin profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jesperbkskov Additional information: In 2013 I lived in Tokyo, Japan for half a year to study the Japanese culture, and I was amazed when I saw how things could be done completely different than the Danes would have done it. This experience thought me to see solutions and answers in almost everything. It was an amazing experience.

    Chelsea Dibble: Writer

    United States - Last active: 24 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

    I am an extremely passionate writer and an excellent wordsmith. Much of my writing is witty, conversational, intelligent and unique; the stuff that isn't is being edited at the moment. I can write an upstanding non-fiction or informative piece or a compelling fiction piece. I also try to follow these ideals in my daily life: My best work is ahead of me. Get things done. Edit. Live each day with discipline. Apologize quickly and often. Write thank you notes. Listen to big ideas. Think of big ideas. Checklists are extremely rewarding. Write 1000 words a day for fun. Practice. If something can't be seen creatively, move to a different angle and look again. Everyone is their own protagonist. Respect that. Take responsibility for everything you do. Be a Renaissance man. Wear as many hats as possible for a few years. Specialize in something after those few years. Be annoyingly curious. Edit. Some of the topics I love writing about include: travel, health and fitness, finances, advice, fiction, advertising, small business marketing, heuristics, hiking, mountaineering, self-help, fashion, music, weddings and pedagogy.
