    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!

    Translation, Transcription, Text

    Germany - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 4

    I am a 34 year old freelance writer and translator from Germany and am looking for translation, editing/proofreading and transcription jobs from all over the globe. I am well-travelled and well-educated, including a BA in American Studies, Journalism and Comparative Literature and a Masters in Literary Writing. Over the past ten years, I have worked and collected valuable experiences in a variety of fields and businesses which now enables me to tailor my work to each of my client's individual needs and requirements. The cliché of German virtues is just that, but there is a bit of truth in every cliché. Personally, giving those extra 10 percent on top of what is expected from me is just as much a part of my work as are efficiency, accuracy, punctuality, creativity and keeping a clear head when things aren't going the way they are supposed to - all aspects of being a professional that should go without saying. I am also a published and award-winning writer.

    Freelance Designer

    France - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 18

    Making beautiful things and making you smile. That's my job. Check out my portfolio here : www.behance.net/atlal /* --- MY WORK ---*/ 4 years of experience and a lot of passion later, here I am. On the fly, always up to date and responsive to your expectations. /* --- LANGUAGES ---*/ Native language : french. Native level (C2) : french, english Can understand/translate from (besides the ones mentioned above) : arabic, italian Can translate to : french & english, but particularly french. /* --- CODING ---*/ I prefer directly coding the websites I'm designing. Wasting time making it on photoshop first is something I'm not very fond of. I have some experience in php, mysql and jQuery but my 'ninja grasp' is in designing and putting it together html/css. But I have the ability to work with these languages, otherwise I wouldn't mention them :) /* --- TIME - PAY ---*/ I am always available and don't require much pay. I'm hard working and can work on projects even if they are time limited. I do not have a limit of working hours per week because I am not on any 'big' project right now that would take my time. So I'm a full timer. I can work as much as you need. NOTE CONCERNING WORK HOURS : - PLEASE consider my timezone if I'm not replying to your messages right away : it may be 3 AM, and I may be dreaming about your project. I usually reply within 5 minutes of your request, if not immediately. After long hours of hard work there's nothing better than a happy and satisfied customer, who I hope will be you.
