    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 6 days 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!

    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.

    Translation, Transcription, Text

    Germany - Last active: 2 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.
