    United Kingdom - Tests: 2

    I have built my own wordpress sites and have been using the internet to market products for more than 10 years - I am excellent at proof reading, and can use HTML in my wordpress sites to enhance the way it looks. I learnt to program in BASIC at school - and have used computers ever since. I did a college course in Excel to also enhance my skills. I believe Kindle will be a major player in the future of e-books and I am willing to proof read any book before converting to Kindle. I also have used powerpoint to make slideshows, and also used camtasia studio to convert into a video and upload to youtube.com

I have extensive experience in technical writing in investigative reports, case documentation for legal proceedings, enlisted and officer evaluation for awards and decorations, monthly anti-terrorism measures for installation security, memorandums for squadron and installation commanders. My strengths, that paramount in my job description, is my attention to detail and effective communication skills (written and oral). My weakness, and also a contributing factor to the quality of my work, is being a perfectionist. I do tend to constantly review my work to ensure that everything is in order which affects my time management. However, it has never affected my ability to meet the deadline.
