    Virtual Assistant

    United States - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 4

    I enjoy doing daily tasks and one-off projects to lighten the load for professionals that cannot worry about the details. I am a great candidate for everything from managing email accounts that seem out of control, recording voice prompts, editing educational curriculum, managing WordPress accounts, and writing articles, to creating and formatting presentations and business forms and documents. I really like to call myself the Jill of all trades and strive to make all things transparent for my clients. I am also a homeschooling mother, and am looking for contracts that will continue to enable me to indulge in this passion. I am excited to explore opportunities with new clients.

    United States - Last active: 15 hours ago - Tests: 7

    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all functions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers. I have transcribed videos and audio files. I enjoy writing and this passion has helped me to write many articles on a variety of topics in both English and French. I know the value of getting work done quickly and accurately. I am good at leading others to accomplish that same goal.

    Brazil - Last active: 15 hours ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 4

    I'm a professional customer support agent, project and marketing manager with more than 4 years of experience. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Still studying Mandarim and Dutch, one day I'll get there. I've already worked for 6 different companies in the last 4 years, 5 from U.S and one from Brazil, in their customer support & public relations department. "À tribuna" was the first company I joined in CS and I used to answer clients calls and help them schedule and edit their ads for printing in the newspaper, at Ingreso Cybernetico (www.ingresocybernetico.com), I used to engage and help clients through live chat (zopim), tickets (our own system and ZenDesk), e-mails (hotmail and gmail), calls (skype), through social media (facebook & twitter) and also check translations and the programmers' work. I had to manage the entire operation for their brazilian customers. We used to coordinate and manage the operations of the whole website and digital products through Basecamp and Asana (www.basecamp.com & www.asana.com). I've also worked for four more companies (ALL FROM THE U.S.A): Omaze (fund raising), KeepSafe (App development), Gosu (Game production) and HandPrint (Smartphone rental in the U.S.A). Keepsafe (www.getkeepsafe.com) was the biggest app company I've ever worked for, with more than 40 million users around the world. I've also worked at Teleco.IO (www.teleco.io), Handprint (www.handprint.me) and Grace Smith TV (www.gracesmithtv.com) as a community manager. I basically had to create their social media pages, manage them, answer the questions, engage with people in groups, pages, forums, etc. Here are some tools that I know how to manage: Dropbox, One Drive, google package (drive, docs, sheets, gmail, google+), Social media (Facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest, google+, youtube, linkedin, whatssapp), ZenDesk, Chat&Serve, HelpShift, Infusionsoft, Evernote, IQTELL, Hootsuite, Edgar, Buffer, Basecamp, Asana, Slack, Amplitude, Skype, Office Package (powerpoint, word, excel, etc.), SEOmoz, Google analytics, Webmaster tools, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects, Audacity, Sony Vegas Pro and Sound Forge. I started my carreer in digital marketing in 2012 when I started studying about affiliate marketing and it took me to SEO and the other components of Online Marketing, such as paid advertising (PPC as Adwords, facebook ads, linkedin ads, youtube ads, twitter ads), SMM (social media marketing), SEM (Search Engine Marketing with Adwords), E-mail marketing (autoresponders such as mail chimp, magic responder and aweber), analytics (bing & google's webmaster tools, google analytics, facebook analytics, youtube analytics, seomoz, seo majestic), keyword research (google's keyword planner for adwords, keyworddiscovery, seomoz keyword tool, long tail pro) and content marketing of all types (writting, videos and audios). I'm still building my own digital marketing portfolio. (www.mmnbrasileiro.com, a niche blog) I have the highest score in odesk's EN-PTBR translation test (First place out of 2.678 people.) I'm a professional translator with more than 5 years of experience, I started at the age of 17. I've already worked in several projects online (see my odesk profile) and offline (International events such as "Stone Fair"). I'm a professional voice actor since 2010, I can provide several samples of my work if needed. I'm Young, ethical, diligent, dedicated, experienced, skilled and FAST. I look forward to do my best for you and your company! Hire me and you won't regret having me aboard, let's do it!
