    United States - Last active: 15 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 4

    The combination of my education and experience is a solid foundation for a position within Instructional Design (ID). Having completed a BS and MS in Instructional Design, I have a strong foundation of ID methodology, theory, and design principles. I have over 3 years working experience within higher education as an Instructional Designer and educator, in addition to my time learning through higher education. My roles have ranged from my work with The Center for the Application of Information Technologies at Western Illinois University as an Instructional Designer meeting with faculty and building online educational systems, to teaching undergraduate students technology within the classroom, to developing online and classroom training and professional development materials for East Carolina University Office of Grants and Contracts. I also have corporate training development experience with UnitedHealthcare and Manic Media Group, INC, based in Washington D.C.. Within those two positions I managed multiple projects and assumed a lead designer role. I was tasked with implementing best practices, solid design work, and suggesting appropriate design methods while remaining innovative. Within Instructional Design, I am a multipurpose tool. I excel at front-end analysis, developing the foundation for design and development through the ADDIE model, evaluation and measurement, and overall client relations. Furthermore, as a creative individual, I also excel at storyboarding, multimedia development, photography, and various design software programs, such as the Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office. I have intermediate to proficient skills with most technologies used in this fiend, to include BlackBoard, Lectora, and Camtasia. Being able to design and develop instructional materials and systems with outstanding design and visual principles, and developing full working instructional design systems that are rich with analysis and instructional design theory, I feel I am a perfect candidate for this position. Furthermore, my written and verbal communication skills are superb, and allow me to navigate a variety of conversations and situations. Having been a non-traditional student, I also understand the demands and needs of online learning students from the viewpoints of the University, the Faculty, and the student alike.

    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 9 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 usuallay apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, then that rate apply. On the other hand could other assigments 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 yours kind of recaps what service is about. Besides 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. In addition to work I've been studying sociology, psychology and computer science at academic level. 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 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. Where human language is concerned I write with good imagination, do my research and have a very good vocabulary. Where computers are concerned I like to do life easier for end users and I also focus on usability. Where both languages are involved I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if yo'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!

    Well before the World Wide Web was a common phrase as it is today, before most people even owned a home computer I was programming code in a variety of languages for a variety of network related projects back when you had to put the handset of a telephone on a 300 baud modem. Trillions of lines of code under my belt and a mind that functions like a computer processing unit I not only understand today's most popular programming languages, I know how the languages themselves came to be. I am an expert who has owned, operated or worked with thousands of technology based businesses over the past 25 years. More than a programmer, I am a valuable consultant to any business wishing to build or improve any online enterprise. My work is relatively fast, accurate, functional and most importantly well constructed based on your exact needs. I do all of my own work but will bring in experts if necessary to accomplish the goals of your organization. I am an American living in Pennsylvania.
