    Lithuania - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 3

    I would like to work as bookkeeper, administrator, personal assistant or such work in which I have experience. Also I can learn new things quickly. Over the last 5 years I raised the descriptions of goods in website (worked as administrator 3 years in website about films, 2 years worked as administrator in e-shop about the technique and hardware), also I upload picture and write receipts and uploaded photos of them all. Sometimes I copy-paste descriptions from other websites, translate from various languages. So I have experience in creating descriptions of goods in websites, adding products, but I have no experience in creating websites - I think I have too less experience of this (two sites for my self is not enough for perfect experience). Also I am not familiar with Wordpress, SEO, but I can learn new thing quickly. Here in Odesk I finished job "Handwritten scanned documents in french to be transcribed into excel sheets." I had Created 100 yahoo Accounts in one day several weeks. So I have some experience in creating accounts too. All information I had to enter in spreadsheets. I have experience in typing, more than 5 year in megatypers and wrote and writing texts in Word format from pdf books. From April in 2014, till September in 2014 I worked with tasks for students - made exams from various books - copy from pdf to word. Because I was working in group - I made Google doc and write there information about book from which I use tasks. From September in 2014 I am working this kind of job "Formatting books for eBook publishing". Job description: work is to format documents for eBook publishing. Need to download the text of each book, paste it into Microsoft Word, delete certain parts of the text, add some standard pre-written text to the beginning of each file, format the chapter headings to be the proper font size and style, and then save the file. For each book need to enter some metadata into a shared Google spreadsheet (title, author, keywords, etc). From March, in 2015 sometimes I got job like this: "Data Entry - Conversion of PDF file to Excel". Information about job: Need to convert PDF files into workable Excel spreadsheets. PDF files are laid out in spreadsheet format. Each files are from 5 - 15 pages. Would like quote per pages. It will be between 4-6 PDF files per week that needs to be converted. Must be able to add correct formula based on quantity and percentage. It is fairly easy Excel basic formula. Need someone quick that can turn around a pdf file 4-6 hours upon uploaded during work hours. From March, in 2015, I got this job: "Amazon Assistant Wanted. (Product Analyst and Purchaser)". Worked a lot for "Amazon FBA shipments", created new Amazon FBA orders from Fulex. This involves data entry, and analyzing data from multiple websites and so on.
